My brother with Downs Syndrome is the happiest person I've met
by lisa cyrus
-Some people think that being smart and funny are the most important things about life, but I believe being happy is.
I was so worried when my younger brother was born with Downs Syndrome. It's a medical condition where you have an extra chromosome that causes many different symptoms, but it doesn't affect a persons happiness.
My brother is 18 now, and although in many ways he is slower than the other kids, he is a delight to know.
He's always laughing and really gets more out of the simple pleasures in life that all of us take for granted, than any one I know.
Even though I wouldn't wish any to have Downs Syndrome I wouldn't trade my brother for anyone either. -Lisa
