When Margie and Kurt Kondrich gave birth to their second child, Chloe, the doctor told them in the delivery room she had Down syndrome. And the information they gave them was negative. Kurt, then a Pittsburg policeman, became a man on a mission, providing early intervention for Chloe which he says lays a foundation for a lifetime of success. So strong was his passion, Kurt got a master’s in early intervention and now spreads the word full time. Kurt, Chloe and family worked to pass a law requiring medical staff to share information on what people with Down syndrome can truly accomplish. As for Chloe, Kurt says she reads better than some of the policemen he’s worked with. Kurt’s a hero who tirelessly points to the many blessings of people with Down syndrome.
