When Her Dad With Down Syndrome Turned 50, A Woman Exposed The Truth About His Parenting

When we hit middle age, we often become reflective on what we’ve done, and what we’d still like to do. But for some, life is still a miracle with each day to be treasured as if it were their last. And Richard Castillo might know a thing or two about this, because he’s just turned 50. Now that’s not that old, you might think. However, Richard has defied the odds, including doctors’ predictions, to reach that milestone whilst having the life-limiting condition, Down syndrome.

Now Richard’s daughter is the appropriately named, Richie Anne Castillo, aged 23. Born in July 1995, Castillo is a resident of Cebu City in the Philippines. And she works as a volunteer at the Kythe Foundation, a charity that focuses on helping sick children. What’s more, not so long ago, she had some unexpected words to share about Richard on social media.
