Fourteen years ago, little Chloe came into my world. Chloe is my youngest sister. On the day of her birth, we learned that she had down syndrome. The feelings I had were mixed. Being that I knew virtually nothing about downs, I felt a sense of sorrow and loss. Sure, I was happy to have a little sister, but I was also fearful of the future. My assumptions were largely negative.
The following video is one of the most powerful videos I’ve watched as of late. It just goes to show how God can use the people around us to completely transform us! I can’t imagine my life without my sister Chloe. She’s brought our family together in many ways and I’m so proud of her! My children love her and it’s a joy to be with her and watch her grow up! Watch this video and reflect:
