My hero is my 8 year old daughter. Brady has Down syndrome, and has been through more than any child should ever have to face. Numerous surgeries, illnesses, therapies, doctors appointments, hospitalizations, and the list goes on and on. She and her sister are the lights of our lives, and Brady's strength and steadfastness makes us a stronger family. Anytime I have to face a daunting task, I think of the strength our little girl shows everyday as she goes off to school, and my problems seem non-existent in comparison. I truly believe that she was placed on Earth to help others learn that life is only altered because of special needs, and not diminished.
