|Because I pray for all of my children,|
not just Aaron.
There are those that might think that Aaron's challenges rule the world around here. And sometimes, occasionally, they are in the forefront. But that also usually means there's sirens in the air and an ambulance pulling up.
So what does a trisomy sibling do at our house?
Well they build cars for a Pinewood Derby (complete with the local high school colors!).
|Jonathan is Lone Peak's Math Sterling Scholar|
|Andrew at the district science fair.|
They go to school.
They serve missions.
They goof off.
|Yes, Michael is wearing David's LEG brace|
on his WAIST.
Yeah, they may know a little (okay, a LOT) more medical terms than most grown-ups. They know how and when to adjust oxygen. They know how to tell if he's being silly or needs some help. And as someone point out on Sunday evening, our dinnertime conversation may be peppered with talk that could cause indigestion for tender tummies. (Stomas, trachs and snot anyone? Sorry.)
But most of all, they're kids, siblings, complete with all the goofiness, rivalry and messy rooms that come with growing up. Yeah, most of all, they're more LIKE other kids than DIFFERENT. And frankly, so is Aaron.
