I'm Paul and I’m proud to be Emily's Dad.
Emily is 24 years old. She has an older sister and a younger brother and is a terribly proud Aunt to a niece and nephew. Emily attended mainstream school through to the end of Year 11 and got some GCSE’s. She's now at college and has a paid part-time job! She’s the life and soul of any party and I would bet on her in a dance off against anyone!
Emily has a unique sense of humour. She is ALWAYS quick to forgive when she has been hurt by someone. She humbles me. She makes me laugh. She makes me cry.
Oh, did I mention? Emily has Down's syndrome - something I knew nothing about until Emily was born. I’ve spent the last 24 years learning from Emily. She teaches me far more than I have ever taught her.
This blog is here to record those moments when I learn something from Emily. I hope it is of some encouragement to you as you read it. Thanks for stopping by.
