Welcome to another episode of Celebrating Caregivers. We’re showcasing caregivers who are tirelessly working toward bringing their kids to the mainstream and making our society inclusive in the true sense.
No joy in life brings greater pleasure than another get to love and treasure, and this statement truly applies to our little champ Avnish, a 7 year old, who became the first and youngest child to reach the altitude of 5,550 Metres (18,200 feet) at Mount Everest, the world’s highest peak. This achievement was not easy for him but was huge for Avnish as he was diagnosed with Down Syndrome at an early age. He also likes to play drums, dhols, and cycles. Apart from these he loves to plant, draw, play and learn.
But, have you guys ever thought about how he is able to do so many wonderful things? Everyone has a special person in their lives; for Avnish, it’s his father.
Being a single parent is not easy, but it can be rewarding as it has been for Aditya. He’s from Pune, and his life took a pleasant turn when he visited an orphanage where he met Avnish. A connection of love developed between them, and the adoption process began; there were many hoops to jump through in order to make this adoption happen, but Aaditya didn’t give up on society’s psychology.
In recognition of his efforts, the “world’s best mommy” title was bestowed upon him on International Women’s Day this year. He has been invited to a UN conference to discuss how to raise children with intellectual disabilities, and many articles have featured him.
Avnish and Aditya’s relationship is inspiring to see. We wish them all the best for their future together.
