    Remy is a young girl I met who is autistic and also has Down syndrome. The second I met Remy I knew she was special, not because of her condition (it does not define her), but because of her contagious joy. There was not one minute while I was with her that she wasn't smiling and enjoying herself and through her genuine happiness I was reminded that no matter what we may be going through, we can always find joy in life. She's my hero.

    This is a joyful portrait of this little girl. I really like the expressiveness of her feet in the background. This little detail adds to the whimsical feel of the image.
