“Whatever, I’m Just Happy He’s My Brother!”
We could all stand to learn a lot from big sister Ace Eicher — because sometimes viewing the world through the eyes of a child is exactly what we need.
Ace can’t get enough of her brother Archie, an adopted child with Down Syndrome brought into Eicher family from Bulgaria when he was younger. Ace insists her brother is just like any other brother she could have, or better yet, that he’s “the best brother in the whole world” because of his differences.
This bro and sis seem inseparable, and do everything together, from going to the park and playing in the pool with their buddies to taking some time to eat ice cream (necessary!), and while Archie might get on Ace’s nerves occasionally, their love for one another shines through in such a beautiful and earnest way.

I am literally in tears.
