They are both inspirations to all. He may not have won a gold medal at the olympics, but in my book he is a
WINNER in the medals of DETERMINATION, DIGNITY, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY IN EMPATHY.

With his loving and exemplary way Ellie May may want to train for the olympics!
You go little angel. ;)

Noted with thanks, Barb for this inspiring article and photos! The little girl is so precious and so full of life and optimism, which is the way it should be! And same with the man who really is a star athlete! It shows that the only limitations in life are the ones we put on ourselves!
