Acceptance Parents Could Only Dream Of

NEVADA, Calif. -- Colin Peirce's parents didn't think it was possible that their son could be elected Nevada Union High School's homecoming king.
Denis and Nancy Peirce were just thankful when their son, a 17-year-old with Down syndrome, was named one of the three finalists.
To see him riding in a convertible and waving in a parade-like procession at the Sept. 23 homecoming game, in front of the whole school and thousands more on hand, was something the couple never dreamed they would see.
