"My older brother, Michael, is 31 years old. He was born with Down Syndrome. He is the sweetest, most loving, happiest, funniest, and determined young man that I have ever met. Michael’s smile can light up any room that he walks into. He loves to be the center of attention and loves to talk to anyone that comes his way.
Since Michael was a child, he has always been the person who tries to prove to others that he can accomplish anything that he puts his mind to and is still that way today.
He is a success story. Michael owns his own recycling business and is very successful. He has proven that hard work pays off!
My brother Michael might have been born with Down Syndrome, but Down Syndrome does not define him as a person.
Michael is more than just having Down Syndrome. Michael has defined his own destiny, his own goals and dreams through determination, guidance and love. I truly believe that everyone in life has a purpose, and Michael is no different! Michael has proven that not even an extra-chromosome can get him down, because he will always prove himself to be the very best that he can be.
I am so honored to be his sister! Michael is the best thing that has ever happened to me. Nothing will ever change that, not even an extra chromosome." - Angie #StandforLIFE
