A VERY Special Birthday

A few years ago I had the immense privilege of meeting a very special little boy.  He has a very nasty condition called Congenital Myotonic Dystrophy plus Epilepsy and severe learning difficulties.  His prognosis was very poor and those that love him were told that he would only live for a couple of years at most.

Well, this amazing lad has blown that prediction totally out of the water... this year he celebrates his 16th birthday!  How fantastic is that!  Even though he is severely disabled, his beautiful personality shines through and his determination is just phenomenal.  Now as any parent of a child with severe learning difficulties will tell you, trying to find an age card that equals their child's interests is virtually impossible.  With all of this in mind, I'm sure you can totally understand how honoured I was to be asked to make a 16th birthday card for this gorgeous boy using characters from his favourite TV shows.

Have fun and enjoy life, just as this wonderful Birthday Boy does :)
