Raising our kids is a challenging yet rewarding process. Seeing them grow up healthy, leave home and have their own family. Nothing is better than that. This dad has the same story but his daughter is a bit more special. The little girl with down syndrome does an excellent thing in her life. She has just achieved her academic goals. Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Photography & Media from California Institute of the Arts.

Although many official graduation ceremonies this year have been canceled due to the complex situation of coronavirus, it could not prevent parents from celebrating their kids’ success. You can see some parents congratulate the graduates via Zoom chat, others replicate graduation ceremonies at home. There are also parents who announce the news to social media to acknowledge their kids’ achievements. And some go viral for it.
