New York Times Piece

This is an interesting piece from the New York Times. Even more interesting were the responses, mostly from parents but also from siblings of people with Down syndrome. Warning, have your tissues handy. Very moving, sad, bittersweet, and simply sweet. I find myself both desperately curious to hear from siblings of people with Ds but also terrified. I only want to hear the stories of "my brother made me a better person, he is the glue that holds our family together..." I don't want to hear the bad stuff, but I know it's there.

But there's good stuff too. Trust me.
