When I think of my little sister, Emma, I immediately think of her smile. Smiling, laughing, and hugging are three of Emma’s favorite activities. Hands down, the best moment when I arrive at my parents’ house is when I see Emma’s face light up and that big smile emerge. When I was five years old, Emma was born with Down syndrome. As a five year old, you don’t really understand what Down syndrome is. In my eyes, Emma was my extra special sister who had a great big smile. During my sophomore year of high school, I remember I was having a particularly bad day. I was trying to hide the fact that I was crying, but Emma knew that I was upset. She reached up, gave me a hug, and started singing the song, “God Will Take Care of You.” I looked at her, saw that grin, and I knew that at five years old I had gotten it right … God blessed me with the most special sister I could ever imagine.
