I'm a little late to post this for Down Syndrome Awareness day but I was saving this image as a special gift for Dan's family who were going through some trying times.
Dan Is one man you will meet and he will forever leave a mark in your life or on your heart! His smile is infectious and his laugh makes your problems fade away.
He has a way of making you feel warmth even on the coldest of days.
This image captures his unique fun loving personality perfectly! Dan keep your star shinning bright mate! You don't realize how many lives you are touching on a daily basis. <3 " My face may be different but my feelings the same,
I laugh and I cry and I take pride in my gains,
I was sent here among you to teach you to love, As God in heaven looks down from above,
To him I am no different, his love knows no bounds,
Its those here among you in cities and towns, That judge me by my standards that man has imparted, but this family I have chosen will help me get started,
For I am one of the children so special and few, That came here to learn the same lessons as you,
That love is acceptance that must come from the heart, We all have the same purpose though not the same start,
The lord gave me life to live and embrace,
And Ill do as you do but at my own pace" - Anonymous #smiles #love #acceptance #swagger #blackandwhite #whangarei #whangareiphotographer #nzphotographer #portraitphotographer #nikon #d750 #downsyndromeawareness #awareness #downsyndrome #iamme
