Heart-warming news

...and sad in some spots.

Not sure which forum this should go in, but I wanted to share it somewhere. So here it is.
Lady dedicates birthday message to 50-year-old father with Down syndrome, reflects on growing up with him
And despite a lifetime of dialysis, multiple surgeries and medical procedures, he continues to smile and remain optimistic, saying, “I’m not afraid because I trust in the Lord”.

Of her father’s courage, Castillo writes,

“You always put a smile on your face after a long day at the dialysis center, or after a hypoglycemic episode. You are the bravest because you have been through so much and you never, not even once been afraid. I cannot imagine putting myself in your shoes.”

Besides her father’s grit and positivity, however, Castillo’s writing also reflects what is was like to grow up with a father who is “different”.

When she was younger, Castillo would get picked on by her schoolmates, who called her “abnormal” because of her father.
