My magical moment was when my sister Rebecca was born. She was born two months early, and had to have heart surgery to repair two holes in her heart. It was a miracle that she was saved. She had to stay in an incubator, which is a machine that keeps you warm when you are very young and sick.
That day, that my sister was born, she had down syndrome. Down syndrome is NOT a disease! It is a disability that she was born with. People have asked me if there is something wrong with her. The answer is no. All that down syndrome is is that it makes you think slower. Even though my sister thinks slower I still love her more than ever.
