  1. My only child, a son. was born on this day. Like the picture, it was a day with bursts of light, but also very blurry and confusing, Shortly after delivery we found out that my son had Down Syndrome. I am happy to say that over the years, my son has grown into an amazing, brave, hilarious and sometimes stubborn man. He turns 29 tomorrow and I am so grateful for him.

  2. I am so glad I stumbled upon a video on Facebook about this amazing life. I don’t want to use the term work because it wasn’t, it was life. I was born on this day. I had some troubles as a young man. Drugs and alcohol. I found a muse through art to keep me off those things along with my children. I keep my hands moving when I am drawing, letting go of the troubles of the day and diving into a realm of my imagination. I have 3 children now and I show them everyday why it is important to be a human and not just a statistic. I searched through many of these pictures. Some made me laugh, some made me smile, and others made me cry. This is art, this is life.


Tell us a story.
