Most of you know our family but let me start with a small introduction: My name is Shannon and I’m the wife of a very hard working man named Charles. We have two sons that have taught us many things and continue to do so. Our oldest son Dakota is 5 years old. He is a very loveable and happy little boy. Dakota has special needs. He is developmentally behind; has hypotonia, is unable to talk or walk, he has epilepsy and just recently we found out that he has a gene mutation. We have never let this define our son. Our youngest Jordan is a very energetic one year that loves his big brother and trucks! The bond between these two boys is just amazing and we love watching them together.
This website was started to raise funds for a wheelchair assessable van and other things Dakota’s insurance doesn’t cover. Up until now we have always kept everyone updated on his face book page but we feel a blog better fits some of the more lengthy updates. We hope that you continue to follow and support us through the up and downs, the good and bad of Dakota’s Journey.
