Proud Mummy Monday #1

Ashley & his certificate

This is my son on his 13th Birthday in 2007. He was chosen to receive the Lions Club Children of Courage Award. They have a category for children with Mental & Physical handicaps and him having Fragile X Syndrome (a form of Autism) he was eligible. His teacher had nominated him for it which we thought was wonderful. What was even more wonderful was the ceremony was on his birthday so when he was on stage the whole auditorium sang Happy Birthday to him.
