A Message From Luca Grimaux

Nobody expects to have a child who has special needs. That was not part of our plan. Ever since we received a prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome in 2015, we have learned that God has bigger plans. Being Luca’s parents has been our best, most unexpected blessing. At 20 weeks pregnant we took a tour of the Little Lighthouse and added Luca to the waiting list. Nearly three years later we received the call that Luca would begin his first year. The Little Lighthouse has blessed and enriched our lives and we are thrilled for Luca to attend his second year, beginning in August 2019.

The Little Lighthouse has been serving children with special needs since 1972. The highly credentialed teachers and therapists come to work everyday to love and teach these children. The quality of care that is received is estimated to cost $32,000 annually but we send Luca there TUITION-FREE. The Little Lighthouse does not charge tuition to families, they do not receive any funding from the government or United Way; they have kept their doors open, and even expanded, thanks to generous donations.

Our family is so excited to see what is in store for our boy, this year, at the Little Lighthouse. We cannot wait to see new milestones met, new friendships made, and continued growth for our son and his amazing school. We are grateful for your role in our journey and thank you for your support. We will take part in several fundraising efforts leading up to October 12, 2019, when Luca will participate in the annual Mini-Laps. Last year Luca took his lap with the assistance of his walker. We are so proud that, this year, Luca will walk his lap without equipment. We hope you will be there to cheer him on, and consider clicking the donate button below. Thank you!

About This Campaign

Mini-Laps is a fundraising event that is led by the parents of our students. Our children attend the Little Light House and receive much needed therapy services on a tuition-free basis, and Mini-Laps is the time when parents raise money for their child's year at school. At the event, each child takes a lap around the Little Light House track as we celebrate the milestones that they have met at school.

    This donation of $18, which in the Jewish religion is the number signifying life, is dedicated to my brother Daniel who is still suffering greatly with his cancer diagnosis under my care in Atlanta. In the Jewish faith it is believed that an act of “tzedakah”, or charitable giving, during a rough time will bring blessings and healing upon the family of the person doing the “mitzvah”, or good deed. If I can bring healing blessings upon my brother and help Luca continue to thrive at Little Lighthouse that’s a win win.
