Richie Anne Castillo is a young woman whose dad has Down syndrome. As she was growing up, she sadly was made fun of by other children because of it.
When her dad celebrated his 50th birthday, she wrote him a beautiful letter to celebrate, and it’s kind of a tear-jerker.
On Instagram, she shared, “Dear Dad. Today marks a very special and very miraculous moment of your life.”
“You turn 50 today and I am so blessed that you continue to live such a long and beautiful life. Doctors are still amazed by it! I know you won’t be able to read this because I don’t know if you have Facebook, but I want the whole world to know how proud I am that you are my dad.”
“I want the whole world to know how beautiful you are inside and out.”
