According to a study by Skotko B.G., Levine S.P., Goldstein R. published on ncbi.nlm.nih.gov, the majority of brothers and sisters who have siblings with Down syndrome said they are proud of having them. 96% of the surveyed people said they had affection for their brothers and sisters with this condition.
