My sister is my best friend. When I was in second grade I wrote a story for the reflections contest about how proud I was to be the sister of a child with Down Syndrome. I am happy to say that I am still proud of that fact today. I'm also very humbled by it. Tara has taught me so much through her fun personality and example. I know I would not be the person I am today without her influence in my life. She is the source of my joy and is my rock when I really need someone to lean on. I love her more than words can express.
Happy Down Syndrome Awareness Month!
