Two awesome Down syndrome stories

One of my featured blogs, Noah's Dad, posted about a young Brazilian actor with Down syndrome whose dream is for Sean Penn (who inspired him to pursue acting in the first place) to come to Brazil to see the opening night of the movie he is starring in -- "Colleagues". Watch the trailer and share, maybe the dream will come true!

Well, I posted this to Facebook, and an old friend of mine commented:

You may enjoy this article. I have known Frankie for many years: http://www.lohud.com/article/20100221/SPORTS01/2210345/Frankie-Scarfone-Unexpected-master-black-belt

 Amazing story.  Especially when you consider this guy's age (46) in light of his mom's recollections of the standard medical advice to institutionalize him because he'd never amount to anything......
