Chuck beamed with pride.
He finally finished. It took months, but he did it with his own hands. He ran inside, and smiled at his dad.
“Dad! Come take a look!”
“What is it, Chuck?”
“Come with me!”
His dad walked out to the greenhouse and looked. Seeing Chuck’s creation, he smiled.
“See Chuck, I knew you could do it.”
“I know, Dad. But it’s real now! And you can put things in it.”
His 17 year old son created something useful. Down Syndrome didn’t stop him. His dad smiled, knowing his son was going to create beautiful, workable things.
