There's Nothing He Can't Do
There's Nothing He Can't Do

We were devastated when we found out Davis had Down syndrome. All the thoughts of what he wouldn’t be able to do flooded our minds. Now, almost ten years into the journey, we know those initial thoughts were based only on our own ignorance. Life with Davis is a constant celebration of all he can do. Here he is proudly showing off his gymnastics skills in anticipation of the Special Olympics Summer Games that were hosted in Boston in July. When it’s not gymnastics, it’s baseball, or swimming, or tubing, or jet skiing. What can’t he do? We haven’t come across that that yet… go, Davis!

Great story! I also have a child named David (D.J. short for David Jr.) and he is so much more than I thought when he was born! I love these inspirational stories!

How awesome - my granddaughter also participated in the same Special Olympics. And like you we were so worry on the things she would not be able to do. But boy - we were so wrong. I live in Florida and I love going to North Andover just to go visit her.
