Siblings Grateful for Family Member with Down Syndrome

Bradley Mattes   |   March 22, 2018

Yesterday was World Down Syndrome Day and I’m still celebrating.  Siblings of kids with Down syndrome were asked if it was tough having them in the family.  Leah responded her sister was instrumental in equipping her for a future as a nurse.  Genna said this about her brother, “Having Jaxon in my life has made me a lot happier and he has given me a more positive view of life.”  Jamie credits his sister with getting him out of his comfort zone.  On many occasions Rachel dragged him into conversations with total strangers.  She was a family bonus.  Victoria said it wasn’t all that different, citing Amie’s attendance in mainstream schools and college.  Please visit life issues dot org where we have loads of resources and information on Down syndrome.
