My Brother Markie

Tuesday, October 02, 2007 @ 9:38 AM

My name is Candice Pekarcik and I have been blessed with a 9 year old brother, Markie, who has Down syndrome.  He is the happiest, most outgoing, bright and loveable boy I have ever met.  From the day he came into this world I have always thought of him as a blessing.

He has so much love to give but unfortunately there are people out there that don't know how to respond when they are approached by him.  He likes to say hello and give hugs to everybody that passes by him.  There are  people that turn their shoulder to him but he still smiles and thinks nothing of it, and I love that about him.

Everyday is a great, happy day to him and a lot of people could learn something from him.  We are all different and unique and that's what makes us all so special.  I love you, Markie!
