Tim has Down Syndrome -- and is, we are told, the only restaurant owner with Down Syndrome.

Greetings guests at the door with a hug -- you can see the joy he gets from serving people food -- and from giving a little bit of love!

As Tim says, "We serve breakfast lunch and hugs: hugs are the best part!"

The Albuquerque restaurant calls itself "the world's friendliest restaurant!"

Owning a restaurant has been a lifetime dream: "When he was 14 years old, he said he wanted to own a restaurant."

Tim sums up his philosophy of being a restauranteur -- and life: "Food is food. I give them a hug and then they all feel better!"

There is a wonderful book by Bernie Siegel called 'Prescriptions for Living' which has in it a quotation by a young man with Down Syndrome - I can't find it just at present (the only thing wrong with this book is that there isn't an index so I could find things like this!), but the young man says about being retarded - that he knows that many people are retarded when he sees them - they can't let their love out to others, so he feels they are retarded - and how right that young man is! I think he and this excellent young man and his wonderful family have a lot in common! Marvellous!

I've seen about this young man somewhere else and this only validates that everyone has value. Good for you to continue promoting this.

There are many people who are "different", but they bring their own special contributions

Pat A - I love that statement: "the young man says about being retarded - that he knows that many people are retarded when he sees them - they can't let their love out to others, so he feels they are retarded - " How very true!!! Thanks for sharing the idea
