My Brother Daniel
My Brother Daniel

My brother's name is Daniel, and he has Down syndrome. I love Daniel so much; he is always happy and smiling. He always finds a way to make me smile. My favorite picture of Daniel and I is one taken when I was a baby, and he was holding me, smiling. Daniel loves music, especially classic rock! His favorite artists are Cher, Meatloaf, and The Who. I will always remember when Daniel got a blood clot in his leg. It was really scary, and my family and I were very afraid that something would happen to him. But through everything, even surgery, Daniel's face would light up every time he saw us. We prayed, and God helped Daniel to get better! It is such a blessing to have Daniel in my life, and he teaches me great traits to have, like kindness, happiness, generosity, and most importantly, love.
