Love him just the way he is. So many people that are either mentally or physically challenged are forgotten about.YEs. These special people are a blessing. It’s shameful that many with diagnoses of “ less than desirable” aren’t even let to take their first breath. Ipray for that to end one day soon.
My brother is at the mental age of a 12 yr old. He’s 54 and in a group home. He doesn’t have a fix. Well i Love him just the way he is
My brother had it. As bad as your cousin. At 18 he ran a bath for himself that was too hot. Ended up getting burnt ( no feeling from waist down) ... blood poisoning and some other complications ended his life in 68'.My cousin was born with it. He's never walked - zero feeling from the waist down, but has managed to reach the age of 40, has his own apartment and works every day. He's never let it slow him down and manages to drive 50 miles to show up at many of my gigs. Amazingly independent. Truly an inspiration to me and those around him.
