According to a new study put out by Dr. Brian Skotko, 97% of siblings (ages 9-11) said they love their brother/sister with Down syndrome. Similarly, among siblings (ages 12 and older), 97% expressed feelings of pride about their brother/sister with DS and 88% were convinced they were better people because of their sibling with Down syndrome.
How cool is that? We look forward to giving Austin a sibling, but it’s still a few years off. I feel like he NEEDS me to himself a little longer before adding a new sibling to our already crazy life. After all, you can never get these years back and I want to soak up every moment.
That’s all for tonight, more tomorrow!
