Be My Brother

I just was visiting another blog and Sheila posted a link to this great short film. It features a man with Down syndrome, who manages to befriend a woman who is very unsure of how to interact with a person who is "different". This film won first prize at Tropfest, the largest short-film festival.

You can view "Be My Brother" here. Then come back and tell me what you think! It's only about 5+ minutes long.

Thanks for commenting on my blog! "My imagination is far worse than reality" really rings true and makes a lot of sense to me. My friends also badgered / encouraged me to start a blob about Ben to help me cope with my horrible birth experience and prepare myself for his surgery. I think that writing about my situation has already and will continue to help me deal with the dramatic year ahead. I enjoy reading about your beautiful daughter!
