The philosophy of our family is "The sky is the limit". It is the way Clayton Marr, a teenager with courage and perseverance, got his driver license regardless his diagnosis of Trisomy 21 (Down Syndrome). He doesn't know limits and he got really high by reaching his goal and becoming the second – and youngest – New Zealander with Down syndrome to get a driver's license. Read the full story in Stuff, a newspaper from New Zealand.

WHEEL EFFORT: Clayton Marr, 19, of
Waimea West, who has Down syndrome,
proudly displays his driver's licence.
As this teenager got the support from his family to try, Tommy will have the same support and encouragement from Adam and I to reach very high. Things have changed for our kids with T21! It is our duty as parents to learn from parents as Jeff and Sophie Marr to help our kid to achieve their independence. Clayton Marr has proved to us that "The Sky is the Limit."
