Thank you Tom, for agreeing to be a part of this years Fathers Who Inspire exhibit. Please join me to honor Tom and the other Dads on June 19th from 2:00 till 4:00 and the best part is, you get to meet most of the children/young adults too! I had the honor to photograph Matthew and his mom, Melissa for the Mothers Who Inspire exhibit last year. He is such a sweet little guy and to watch the two swing on their swing set was pure joy! When I was watching Matthew look at his crazy father with such excitement, it just warms the heart and makes you smile.
“Matt is one heck of a little man, with all of his challenges he continues to thrive as best as he can. On a daily basis he enjoys spending time with his teachers and his sisters Hannah, Sydney and our dog Shadow.
Menkes Disease has robbed him from being your typical little boy, he can’t walk, run, talk or do much of what a typical nine year old should be doing, which as his Dad, makes it a daily struggle between hope and despair.
Hard to write without getting emotional so I will stop here and wish all a Happy Father’s Day!” Tom Young
