Local Spotlight on Awesome Kid

tyler

tyler

To know Tyler is to love him. To love him is to not see what makes him different, but embrace what makes him unique. You see, Tyler is not your average six-year-old. He was born with Down Syndrome. But don’t let having a disability fool you–Tyler is full of energy and life.

One of Tyler’s favorite sports is baseball. Recently, we were able to watch this tiny dynamo in action at his t-ball game at Centerville Youth League. We were witness to a little boy who, with pure and unadulterated joy, was playing with all the heart and soul he could muster. What was also refreshing was that other players and parents–and even those in the stands–cheered for Tyler. In that moment, he was a “normal” kid, not defined by his diagnosis.

After the game, we got the chance to talk to Tyler about how well he did. While you might not understand everything he says, the smile on  his face is undeniable. This little guy loves baseball almost as much as he loves red sno-cones.

For a moment in time, Tyler is seen for who he is and not a child with Down Syndrome. To be able to enhance his quality of life by allowing him to play the sport he loves most is simply amazing. He is simply an amazing little boy. While we don’t know what the future holds, we do know that Tyler has touched so many lives just by being Tyler.
