Marissa, Brody’s mom, shares their story with us.
My husband and I have three wonderful children. Carlirae is 14, Nicholas will be 13 soon and our Brody is 4 ½.
Brody has Down syndrome and we wouldn’t change a thing about him. He has taught us so much about ourselves and the world. He’s shown us unconditional love and is such a happy little guy.
Don’t get me wrong, he has his moments as does any child but mostly he’s full of love. Brody has defied all the stereotypes early on. At one week he was rolling over. He is very strong and determined. He tends to be social and truly cares about others.
Brody is just an amazing little guy who we all love and can’t get enough of. I feel he will live a full and happy life. My only fear is when his dad and I are no longer here to guide him but we worry about that with all our children so I guess that’s not so different than anyone else’s worries.
