It was the summer of 2013, as the sun rose over the hills of West Virginia and the cameras began to roll that Beau began the greatest adventure of his life so far – filming the independent feature film, LITTLE ACCIDENTS.
From that moment forward, Beau found his new identity – an identity that made him feel capable, talented, successful and valued – adjectives that aren’t often used to describe people with Down syndrome – but on that day, Beau felt all of those things and more as he became a “movie star”.
What has unfolded since that summer has not only been a great adventure for Beau, but for our entire family and I’d venture to say that it’s been a great ride for all of you that have followed Beau’s journey, too.
To celebrate this much anticipated day, our family will be hosting a Red Carpet Premiere of the movie in our hometown of Wilmington.
For our little guy that was born blind and walked with leg braces until he was three, this moment will once again prove that he is capable, talented, successful and valued.
