Siblings and Ds
This is a picture of the nerdlet meeting the bear cub for the first time. She has loved her sister from day 1, as much as a sister can love a new baby regardless of the number of chromosomes. I've posted on the benefits to a sibling of a person with Down syndrome, how studies show they are more compassionate and have better self-esteem and fewer instances of depression, but if you would like more info on the most recent studies, feel free to head over to The Chronicles of Ellie Belly Bear to learn more. Everyone should be lucky enough to have a family member with Down syndrome.
