Brothers & Sisters

Thank you so much for letting siblings share their stories! I have been waiting for an opportunity like this one for a long time.
What makes life with my sibling so wonderful? I could write my own book. I am the blessed sister of a 21 year old brother who has Down syndrome. When we were young, we acted as any brother and sister team do. I didn't appreciate him so much then. Now, we have become each other's favorite person. He was my escort for homecoming and I was his date to his senior prom. No one cheered harder for me at sporting events or cried harder when I graduated from college. He makes ordinary days special just by being there. He truly is my inspiration and there is not a day that goes by that I don't thank God for him. Without him, I wouldn't be who I am today, our family wouldn't be what it is, and the world would be a much sadder place indeed. What makes life with my sibling wonderful? He IS the wonderful.

Thank you for taking the time and reading about my incredible brother. He truly is the closest thing to heaven that I will ever know on this earth!
