My son Brooksey is 6 years old and has Down syndrome. He has taught his dad and me the true meaning of unconditional love. He is a very loving and kind little boy who will put a smile on the faces of all who meet him. Before Brooksey was born his dad and me were both kind of standoffish and quiet, now however we have learned to apppreciate every little milestone he reaches. His speech is severely delayed so when he was 4 we got to hear him say "I love you" for the first time. That was truely the greatest words we had heard up till then. We rarely hear him say anything but when he does we are reminded how blessed we are to have been chosen to be the parents of this truely amazing little angel. We thank the lord everyday for allowing us to raise and care for Brooksey.
