Kayla Jawonio Headshot

I adopted Kayla on February 15th, 1991. As an infant with Down Syndrome, she began receiving services through Jawonio Early Intervention. Fast forward to today, Kayla has graduated from North Rockland High School and I am so proud to be her mom. Jawonio is pretty special to us, it’s an amazing place.
