spe·cial /ˈspeSHəl/ Adjective: Better, greater, or otherwise different from what is usual; designed for a particular purpose or occasion.
13 years ago my family’s life was changed because of special. No one could have prepared our family for the challenges special would entail, but I think we all can agree that special = perfect. You see, my brother was born with one extra chromosome. He has Down Syndrome. While some may look at him as a disability – a label, we look at him as Noah – our video game loving, baseball playing, Special Olympics winning, hilarious brother Noah. He is a gem in our family, and I truly cannot imagine life without him. Likewise, I couldn’t imagine Noah any other way. He is perfect to us. (Well, as perfect as a human being can be. Let’s be honest…he is a boy’s boy! He will play tricks on his sisters, make goofy noises while out at restaurants, and doesn’t always like to do his homework. He’s human!)
I want to celebrate all of the special in our lives with a portrait giveaway to 3 families who have a little extra special in their lives.
