I'd like to introduce you to Julie, and her brother Derrick.
Julie has Down syndrome, and Derrick is paralyzed on his left side. Guess what? They both love their life.
Listen to the story of the "Love Chromosome" and how Julie's mantra of "I love my life!" became a slogan on a tshirt. I so enjoyed watching this video and seeing these siblings joke and interact with each other. I can just picture Kayla and Lucas having this type of relationship as they grow older.
What a powerful quote by Julie that she likes having Down syndrome because it makes her different and she "...likes being unique."
Would you like to win an "I Love My Life" t-shirt? Julie and Derrick have graciously offered TWO t-shirts for this giveaway!
