My Big Brother
My Big Brother

I have a big brother with Down Syndrome. His name is George. He and I have a wonderful relationship. I can't tell you how many people used to make fun of my brother growing up. It was really sad. When I started at the junior high that he was going to he never had to ride the little yellow bus again. He and I would walk to school together. He went to school dances with my friends and me. He was even my date to my Junior Prom and went with my friend to her Junior Prom. He is also an awesome singer and dancer. He loves to sing and bowl and fish. Just like any other normal person. And that's exactly what he is to me and our family. He is an awesome big brother and an awesome uncle. I couldn't ask for a better brother. He has his own facebook page if anyone is interested in adding him as a friend. George Espinoza IV
