This is a wonderful story, Andrea. Thank you for sharing it. It touched me and I’m reblogging it so it can touch others. My favorite parts are his last two sentences, which go something like: “I won’t let my disabilities crush my dreams. We are a gift to the world.” He is indeed. As are you, my friend.
“We believe that people have a huge appetite for being genuinely welcomed, connected with, touched, appreciated, and genuinely cared for.”
When Tim Harris was fourteen years old, his dream was to one day own his own restaurant. As he got older, he began to work his way through high school and college as a host in several chains such as Red Robin and Applebees, and took classes in Food Service in order to make his dream happen – just like many other young men do. In 2010 he reached his goal, and a lease was signed and construction began on Tim’s dream.
What’s so inspiring about this story – besides the success of a young graduate – is that Tim Harris was born with Down Syndrome. And when Tim’s Place opened in Albuquerque, New Mexico in June of 2012, he became the world’s first restaurant owner with Down Syndrome.
