World Down Syndrome Day

my brother-in-law has Down Syndrome.

he is fun and loving and such a true delight.
he loves his mom and his dad
and puts up with merciless teasing from his three(!) older brothers.

as you can see my girls think that their Uncle Matthew is pretty much the greatest thing of all.

i read this article today:

Uncle Matthew will teach our girls how to care, how to laugh and how to love Jesus.
He will teach them to be thoughtful and caring towards people who are not exactly the same as them.

my husband is a more caring, considerate and patient man because he grew up with  brother with Down Syndrome and parents who taught him that every person is worthy of love and patience, and frankly, of life.

We love you Uncle Matthew!!
