Charlie in Italy

This shot of my son has a special place in my heart. On holiday in Italy back in 1992 Charlie would often walk on his own and observe all around him.

He loved to wear his brothers shirts and he always looked like an angel with his white blond hair and beauiful blue eyes. Although he had hearing problems when he was small he developed a way of communicating (almost like a secret language) that only we could understand. As he grew his speech improved but I still occassionially watch videos we have only to marvel at the way he coped so well at such a young age.

Always questioning, always learning there was never a dull moment when Charlie was around.
