Hola, Nathaniel, no se escribir en inglés pero mi corazón no necesita hablar en tu idioma para que sepas que eres muy valiente y se que con la ayuda de Dios,  grandes cosas lograrás, Go, Go, Go. Fuerza que somos más los que queremos aprender de ti. Realmente inspiras ganas de triunfar y salir adelante. Te escribo desde Colombia en Sur América desde donde acabo de ver tu caso. Desafortunadamente mis hijos están dormidos y no lograron ver tu gran ejemplo. Adelante pequeño valiente,

Dear Nathaniel, you are an amazing and a strong little boy. You are beautiful just the way you are! I literally cried when I heard you're story and the way other children and even adults have treated you. I am very glad that you have such good parents. I hope the society wont treat you in a bad way, only because of your syndrome, and give you everything you need. God bless you!

Dear Nathaniel!
You are great! Millions of people sympathize you and want to be your friends! Can you imagine such a crowd? ;) Of course sometimes you will meet individuals who can abuse you. But they are few, and we are - millions. You have to remember it in such occasions and you may tell it to such a person before leaving him alone. :)
As many of others here I'd like to communicate with you too and I hope it will happen some day. But now I want you to know: all your wishes will come true.

Your sincere friend
