Ace Eicher wants to introduce you to her brother Archie, a boy who was once cast aside because he was born with Down syndrome. Archie started his life in Bulgaria, but through the tireless efforts of his new parents, would find a fresh life filled with love and support in the United States.
Ace beautifully details out all the things that make Archie a great person, and how their bond will never be broken. The process to adopt Archie wasn't an easy one, but you can tell just how much it means to both children to have each other in their lives. Day to day they are inseparable, and share a care and a love for one another that I'd argue most siblings would be envious of.
It pains my heart to know that boys like Archie are afterthoughts in some societies, but as long as there are people in the world like Ace and her parents, children with Down syndrome will have a chance to lead a happy life. Currently there are approximately 400,000 people
in the United States with Down syndrome, which knows no race or socioeconomic background.
We feel that Archie's story of finding love and acceptance needs to be heard, so spread little Ace's words to the world if you feel the same. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
