A series of heartwarming stories about people with Down syndrome...
Over twenty years ago I was first exposed to people with Down syndrome. I had two mates, one who had a brother with Ds and the other had a cousin with Ds.
Both were of similar ages if not a bit younger at the time and looking back the real eye opener was the closeness and interaction between them and their family members. I find myself looking back at this time and wonder if it was not all part of life's big game to prepare me for what was to come with Leo. I also wonder if it's this time spent with both Leigh and Adam that allowed me to accept Leo's diagnosis so well.
To help others in breaking down barriers we wanted to share some heartwarming stories and articles about what it's like to live with Down syndrome in Australia. We hope you enjoy!
