Kids who have Down syndrome are the sweetest people you will ever know. I would know this since I have a younger brother named Luis who has Down syndrome. He's not a little kid anymore - this past January he turned 17. One thing I can tell you is that he never gives up on anything. He always sets his mind to finish everthing. During baseball season, several schools come together where we live and form four different teams that are all called purple penguins. My brother particpates and I can tell you one thing, he loves going out there and making homeruns and cheering for his teammates!
