Hey, everyone! For this year’s fundraising efforts for my family to attend the Chromosome 18 Conference in Colorado Springs, I decided to make customized poems. Here’s some information on the poems:
The poems will be nature themed, fairy themed, mermaid themed, or unicorn themed. Every poem created will be different and uniquely yours! The poem will be made into a lovely graphic image and emailed to you.
Now, here’s some information on what the Chromosome 18 annual conference means to me:
The Chromosome 18 conference means a lot to me because I get to meet new friends and spend time with old friends. It also means a lot to me because I get to travel to a new city with my family.
The Chromosome 18 conference helps me get over my fears and my emotions. It helps me feel brave, courageous, and enjoyable. Here’s an example: In July 2017, when my family and I were inside the airport, I was fearful, nervous, tired, and afraid; yet, the view I got from the airplane was amazing and it was all worth it.
I want to check out the swimming pool and have fun with new and old friends. I also want to explore the city if the weather and temperature are good. I also want to check out new restaurants.
Here’s a poem as an example:
Butterflies dash and play
Within the golden sunbeams
Dancing in the afternoon sky.
Butterflies fly in the sky like a colorful moving rainbow
Glimmering in the sky.
The sky sparkling like water.
Butterflies dance freely along
Water sways as it’s greeting the butterflies.
