Down syndrome Fact:
Actually, this is more of a myth buster. There are many who believe that people with Down syndrome are always happy and content. Well, my dear friend's daughter, who just so happens to have Down syndrome and currently a teenager, is not always happy and content. She can be just as bossy and stubborn like every other big sister in the world. And Lillian will get very upset when mommy walks by her and not acknowledge her presence. Every child/teen/adult with Down syndrome will have their own personality like you and I. And it may or may not be the Happy Content person that has always been stereotyped.
