Downs Really Up 2001

I met Peter Henry in 2001 and he asked if I would help write a song about the birth of his son Jonathan. Jonathan had been born with Down syndrome and Peter had a challenge when he became aware of this. This is the story of one man’s acceptance, love and dedication to his son and family. Written in the hope of supporting  Special Olympics thru this recording.
