Karen Davila took to social media to express how proud she is of her son David, who has autism, after the latter participated in an art exhibit for a cause.
"PROUD OF YOU DAVID David and his classmates are closing the year with their first art exhibit - and for a good cause!" Karen posted on her Instagram page.
The broadcaster's son displayed his paintings and sculptures in the said exhibit alongside his classmates.
"These are all @iamdavidstaana’s paintings & sculptures but his classmates have beautiful works as well! For all of you who know David’s journey - you know how powerful a testimony this is of God’s grace & goodness!" she shared.
"All proceeds of the artworks & photographs will go to the MISSIONARIES OF THE POOR! You can call @ericsonperezj at +63 998 850 6420 and visit the Vanguard Academy along Rockwell, Edsa - exhibit is until Friday," Karen added.
In another post, the TV Patrol anchor shared a clip of David sharing details about his paintings.
"BRAVO DAVID Sharing with all of you some of David’s paintings from his art exhibit as he caps his first year of taking a special Visual Arts course from The Vanguard Academy!" the broadcaster wrote.
Karen hopes that David's journey will inspire parents of gifted and special children to believe and invest in helping their children develop their skills.
"It makes me so proud to share David’s journey & his accomplishments because I know it will inspire other mothers with gifted & special kids to believe, commit & invest in developing their child! Thank you @ericsonperezj and all the teachers of @thevanguardacademyph for such an amazing job! Praise God for all of you! I love you so much @iamdavidstaana," she wrote.
In May, Karen also took to social media to express how proud she is of David for voting for the first time during the election day.
"PROUD OF YOU DAVID What a milestone! David, now 20 years old, voted for the first time," Karen shared on social media back in May 10.
She added, "As a mom of a special child, it makes me SO GRATEFUL and HAPPY that David is aware, concerned and very present in the moment! Kids in the Autism Spectrum can live better lives if parents intervene early! As a parent, this is the best gift we can give them!"
