This smiling young Perth boy, Ryan lives with a developmental delay and chromosomal abnormality.
Ryan’s mum Michelle has, for years, put aside her own needs and interests to care for Ryan, working part time and relying heavily on family for support.
The family has never been away and like all parents, Michelle really wanted to show Ryan a different part of the world and new experience that come with a trip away.
Her dream destination was the Conservatory at the end of Busselton jetty, getting away for a night.
But this all required careful planning as Ryan has eating issues and is very particular about what he eats, particularly in regard to solid food. His mum was concerned that Ryan would experience difficulty being away from his routine and even eating his usual food away from home.
Early 2013, they took off for their long awaited and much-needed holiday and we are pleased to say that Ryan had a fantastic time! It was definitely a trip they will remember forever.
