Explaining Down Syndrome

When our daughter was first born, one of the main concerns I had was how I going to explain this to my son? He was so excited to finally have another person join our family. He had been waiting for 5 years. I knew he would love his sister no matter what. But I didn’t know if he would truly understand what Down Syndrome meant in regards to her future.

Over the last year, he frequently talked about when she would get married and become a mother.
He loves Down Syndrome. So much that he asked if he could have another sibling with Down Syndrome. We have grown to love and embrace everything that makes these individuals special.
