About Down with Joel

This is a blog about my experiences as a sibling to the best little brother who happens to have down syndrome. We’re here to share our stories, sources, advice, and love!  I love my brother and how he effects my life. He has literally shaped me and has taken control of my life and I want to share it with you!
