Adit from Indonesia
Accepting my destiny as a child with Down syndrome certainly is not easy for me or my family.
But, I chose to be grateful for what I am by doing the best I can.
I chose to show my interest in music by playing the drums, slowly developing my skills. Now, I aspire to be the first drummer with Down Syndrome to travel the world entertaining everyone through my performance.
Sometimes I would accompany my mother in the kitchen by cooking and selling cakes and hope someday to have a cake shop of my own.
I believe we’re not so far different from others, we just have to work harder and practice more.
Regardless we are grateful for the health God has blessed upon us.
We hope that our struggle will encourage all other children with Down syndrome as well as create a sense of gratitude in the hearts of those that are born healthy.

The best way to promote awareness of Down syndrome is for people with Down syndrome to share their own stories in their own words.
