Each year, the Down Syndrome Association of Northern Virginia (DSANV) throws their annual Holiday Party. Each year, one of the biggest hits is when Santa comes to town, and the kids get a chance to visit with him. And, each year, since I can remember, Santa is played by Brian Deloatche, a member of DSANV and a wonderful volunteer for the organization. This year was no different, as Brian dressed-up in his red Santa outfit and made folks smile. However, one difference is that his son, Charlie, decided to dress up as Santa as well! As dad dutifully answered the wishes of all of the children at the party, Charlie made his way around the party. As Charlie made his way through the crowd, one of the other young members, Matty Ray, ran up to Santa and wanted a photo with the “other” Santa. For many, the photo is a cute one, where two young self-advocates pose for a nice holiday photo. For myself, the photo is a glimpse of the future, when Charlie is playing the real Santa at the DSANV parties, and Matty is stopping by for another good photo.
