This lad is just amazing, born with a cleft pallette and a hare lip, and has undergone many operations yet is as bright as a button and one of the happiest children I have ever met. its such a shame that society judges us on our appearence and not the beauty inside the person.

happy holidays everyoneSmile

First thing I saw was his eyes, what lovely eyes, but I know what you mean, society judges and as a parent I'm trying to bring my two up not to do that. Instinctively they want to know 'whats wrong' or 'why' but trying to explain things in a way that is not judgemental or appearing cruel is hard. Hope you have a good Christmas, all the best for 2005.

Lovely portrait, he has such beautiful eyes, it is up to us as parents to help our children understand that it is not the outside of a person that counts, it is the person inside.

Wonderful Tony.
Have to say like K bring up my own kids to accept and appriciate all things in life that nature bestows on us for whatever reason. I have always found that over the years strange as this may sound that fellow friends who have grown up on staple diet of Science Fiction and Fantasy like myself are the least pejudice people on this Earth and there acceptance of all people colour, creed or deformaty no matter how little is heart warming. Would make reading of this kind a must from an early age.

Beautiful young lad.

Have a wondeful Christmas.

Victor

I find it strange how there are so many examples in life of those of us who have some sort of dissability seem to excel themselves and acheive so much more, a definate lesson to be learnt, many thanks to all who have taken the time to comment, its really appreciated, merry Christmas and a happy new year to you allSmile
