This boy has my heart. I had the honor of meeting him and his wonderful family through GiGi’s Playhouse, a down syndrome achievement center, that is now open in Charlotte! He was one of my little models for their travel photos before they opened. He was shy, but my awesome singing abilities, made him smile;) You can hear that beautiful serenade HERE.

I don’t think he touched the cake at all, but he sure loved the bath!!!

Each Child is Different

I cannot change the way I am,
I never really try,
God made me different and unique,
I never ask him why.

If I appear peculiar,
There's nothing I can do,
You must accept me as I am,
As I've accepted you.

God made a casting of each life,
Then threw the mold away,
Each child is different from the rest,
Unlike as night from day.

So often we will criticize,
The things that others do,
But, do you know, they do not think,
The same as me and you.

So God in all his wisdom,
Who knows us all by name,
He didn't want us to be bored,
That's why we're not the same.
