I came across an inspiring article a couple of days ago. It is about John, a male high school student with Down syndrome, who was recently named Homecoming King. You can read all about it here.
After reading this article and viewing the video, I got the impression that this young man is very much accepted by his peers. He is more alike than different and they know this. This was not a pity vote. He is well liked. He is one of them. He is accepted.
This is what I want for Dylan. Acceptance. Happiness. Love.
