The idea of a book about a child with Down Syndrome originated early on an Easter morning several years ago while I was having coffee and a susage biscuit at a Hardees restaurant. A little Hispanic girl, who appeared to have Down Syndrome, came to my table and stood staring at me. Slightly annoyed at first, I started to turn away. Then another child, perhaps a slightly older sister said, "e;She wants to hug you"e;. Suddenly I received a hug that was so warm and genuine that I have never forgotten it. Inspiration also came from my friend, Carl Hibbert, Jr., a three sport National Special Olympics champion. Carl leads an active and happy life that has included challenging church mission trips to Haiti and Mexico, as well as several places in America. Now 30 years old, he is among the most active and popular young adults I know. I was also encouraged by my son, a pediatrician, who finds his patients with special needs among his most endearing.
