A conversation with Carter, 8-years-old, about his brother Avery, 4-years-old, who has Down syndrome:

Me: How is Avery different from you and me and Daddy and Bennett?

Carter: He has Down syndrome.

Me: How is Avery the same?

Carter: He’s a brother. He likes to hug, everyone likes to hug in our family. He likes chocolate milk. He likes the computer. He likes playing, and brownies. He likes to dig in the garden. He loves our family.

Me: Which is bigger, the thing that’s different, or the things that are the same?

Carter: I’d say, the things that are the same. There’s many more of them and they are more important to me.
