Tim Harris was born with Down syndrome and his father, Keith, admits that acceptance didn't come easily at first.

"Our pediatrician asked me if I knew what Down syndrome was, and the world turned black at that moment, " he told CBS News.
But over the years, Keith's attitude shifted.

"Tim is the second of four boys, and when he was growing up, we saw the challenges that his disability presented socially, ” Keith told Albuquerque The Magazine in February. “We started to ponder when he was young about his future and made the choice that we wanted to create a life for him that was as close to typical as possible.”

Thanks to his parents' faith and support, Harris has not only accomplished the typical, but he's also made the world a little bit more extraordinary.

Other than selling regular New Mexican fare, Tim's Place has a trademark special. It's called the Tim Hug -— a "calorie-free" and "guilt-free" treat that, according to the menu description, guarantees to "improve your lease on life."

"I love giving all the customers a hug because I want them to feel comfortable and connected and being around friends, ” Harris told Albuquerque The Magazine.
