Here at CCE, posts about Leanne and other adults with Down syndrome are among the most popular posts. I get a lot of feedback from parents of young children with Down syndrome who like to see how much promise the future holds for their children when they become adults.
Meet Tim Harris. He is an adult with Down syndrome and he owns a restaurant:
He shared his story on The Today Show earlier this week:
Here's another fun video about Mr. Harris and his restaurant:
Thank you, Tim. You have inspired us with your ambition, energy, eloquence, and unbeatable attitude!

I love this story. Just so happens, my auntie was out there on business and popped in to see Tim and his restaurant on World Down Syndrome Day! She sent us pics, showed him pics of our kids, and gave him hugs from us and Coop (that of course counted in his official hug counter). So awesome. Hope to visit in person someday!ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing this, we hadn't seen the show! Awesome!ReplyDelete
