Wonderland Camp has a sign stating, Serving Special needs since 1969. The event was hosted by the Rauba family, whose daughter Janelle (11) has CdLS. Janelle’s dad, who loves to barbecue, served hamburgers and hot dogs for lunch. Other family members, including, Janene Rauba, Geralyn and John Goodwin, Janelle’s grandparents and Deanna Horsey, all pitched in to round out a delicious meal that was enjoyed by all. Cookies were a big hit for all the children. Kayla and Michael Doerhoff made the 1.5-hour trip from Missouri with their three children, Charlie (2) and Raegan (5) who have CdLS and their daughter, Evelyn.
The day consisted of fun, games and swimming. Swimming was the big hit from what I could tell. It was amazing to see and experience how supportive the families were of each other. It was also encouraging to see how supportive the entire Rauba and Doerhoff families are of the CdLS Foundation. All are looking forward to the Conference. It was our pleasure to be a part of this gathering. We learned so much from the event.
