From the Boston Globe:<P><B>A dancer, by providence, finds his niche</B><P>By Karen Campbell, Globe Correspondent, 12/13/2001<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>They came to regard it as a sign from God, a delicate moment of divine intervention. It happened last December with a single sheet of newspaper, dated more than two weeks earlier, dancing on the wind in their Melrose backyard.<P>It turned out to be a page from the Globe's Living/Arts section, which the Petersons normally didn't read. But on this occasion, Rosemary and Leonard Peterson chanced upon an article about ''A Dancer's Christmas,'' the Boston Liturgical Dance Ensemble's annual celebration of the holiday through dance, music and pageantry. Suddenly, they saw the answer to their prayers.<P>Those prayers revolved around their 31-year-old son Joel, a lively and creative young man with a startlingly direct gaze and a 100-watt smile. He has music in his soul and dance in his heart. He also has Down syndrome, and with his relatively limited language skills, music and dance are his most vibrant and vital outlets for self-expression.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://www.boston.com/dailyglobe2/347/living/A_dancer_by_providence_finds_his_niche+.shtml" TARGET=_blank><B>MORE...</B></A><BR><p>[This message has been edited by Basheva (edited December 13, 2001).]
