The Amazing Journey:
Kurt married his wife Margie in 1996, and they are the parents of their amazing son Nolan and beautiful daughter Chloe.Chloe was born in 2003 with a diagnosis of Down syndrome, and her birth placed the Kondrich family on an incredible journey. Kurt served as a Police Officer for 20 years and received many awards for service to the community. Shortly after Chloe’s birth Kurt learned that up to 90% of children diagnosed prenatally with Down syndrome were targeted and eliminated – 100% in Iceland. Kurt left his career as a Pittsburgh Police Officer and focused on being a strong advocate for our most vulnerable children. Margie and Nolan taught Chloe to read at age 3, and Chloe has had an amazing life in her community at age 18. Chloe’s picture has appeared 5 times on the big screen in Times Square as part of the National Down Syndrome Society’s video promoting ABILITIES, and Chloe is featured on and in the book “Brilliant Souls” which details stories about incredible people with Down syndrome. Chloe and Kurt have received several awards for advocacy efforts including the PA Pro-Life Federation Leadership Award, The St Anthony Award from the Diocese of Pittsburgh, Good Counsel Homes Advocacy Award in NYC, The Array of Hope St John Paul Threshold of Hope Award, the “Chloe Award” in New Jersey, and the California Right to Life League Education Award. Kurt and Chloe spoke at the United Nations in 2017 and 2018 about the priceless gift of life and the silent genocide against children diagnosed prenatally with Down syndrome, and the Kondrich family met with the President and Vice President at the White House for the 2018 March for Life. Chloe’s picture with VP Pence hung in the West Wing of the White House for several months. Kurt and Chloe’s advocacy efforts lead to the PA Legislature overwhelmingly passing the Down syndrome Prenatal Education Act (“Chloe’s Law”) in July 2014, and Chloe signed the law on the Governor’s desk. Kurt and Chloe have spoken several times at the PA Capitol. In 2018 Kurt and Chloe appeared on NYC Cardinal Dolan’s International TV Show, and in March of 2019 Kurt and Chloe were featured in a Global Story of Hope “Why we should welcome children with Down Syndrome” on an International website that reached millions in several languages. Kurt and Chloe were the Keynote Speakers at the 2019 National Right to Life Convention in Charleston, SC, the 2020 NC Right to Life Prayer Breakfast, and the 2020 Room at the Inn Annual Banquet, and Kurt feels very blessed that God uses them to serve and protect our most defenseless citizens. Kurt’s favorite Bible Verse is Proverbs 31:8 “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves”.
