At the risk of being too sentimental — I’d have to say my oldest niece Katie. Katie is “special needs” and will probably always live at home (she’s 27) but never lets that get her down. Katie is always in a good mood and likes everybody. She works a couple days a week with an office cleaning crew and loves her job. She participates in local special-needs recreation and has even won medals in Special Olympics. Over the years Katie has won several medals in golf at the Illinois State Special Olympics, and in 2010 she won a silver medal at the national Special Olympics.
