I am Beau’s oldest sister, Lillie. Eight years ago, the cutest little baby boy came into this world and into our home. I thought he was perfect. When I learned that Beau had Down syndrome, it really didn’t take any of the perfection away. How could it? He is the sweetest, cuddliest, happiest little boy you could ever meet. I love him soooo much! I wouldn’t trade him for the world.
If you have met Beau, you know he is one of the most mannerly eight year olds you’ll ever meet. “Please”, “Thank you”, “Excuse me”…these are all things Beau says daily. Beau loves his Kindle. It’s like a “vacation” for him when the world gets too crazy. If you’ve been with Beau, you have heard him jam out to “Afro Circus” from Madagascar 3. It’s the cutest thing! And of course, he continually spins without dizzying to the whole song. So sweet!
Probably the best thing about Beau is how much he misses us when we’re gone. He has to be the first one to answer the door and then he looks at you and screams, “Lillie!” He runs into your arms and straps himself on like a little koala bear. I love him and am DEFINITELY proud to say that I know Beau. I love you, Bubbie! xoxoxo
