The father with Down Syndrome who raised a future doctor, as proof that love makes everything possible
Men with Down Syndrome, unlike women, find it more difficult to have children. This is what the studies that are being reviewed say, because there have also been success stories. On rare occasions, men with Down Syndrome have managed to have their biological child and one of them is Jad Issa. He not only became the father of a son, but managed to educate him and make him a doctor.
The story of this family from Syria is inspiring.
When Jad's son Sader was born the community accepted their family as it was.
Duke pasur ëndrra të mëdha për djalin e tij, Jad, i cili punonte në një mulli gruri, filloi të kursente para për kolegjin e djalit që kur Sader ishte i vogël. Ai bëri gjithçka që ishte në fuqinë e tij për të mbështetur familjen dhe sipas Sader, puna e palodhur dhe angazhimi i babait të tij për t'i dhënë atij të ardhmen më të mirë të mundshme e frymëzoi që të studionte mirë dhe të bëhej mjek.
“Unë mendoj se do të kisha qenë shumë më pak i emocionuar për jetën dhe shumë më pak i apasionuar me atë që bëj nëse nuk do të kisha babanë tim të veçantë”, shkruan Sader mbi një foto të të dyve bashkë.
Sader is a dentist, has one of the best and highest paid careers in Syria and Jad's happiness knows no bounds. While his son was still studying, Jad introduced himself to young people by telling them, "My son is a doctor," with bright eyes.
The family is the living proof that stereotypes must be broken.
Speaking about the relationship his parents share, Sader told us that despite being together for decades, the love between his mom and dad is still as if they were married yesterday. They perfectly understand each other's needs. They like to walk together and sometimes they just sit and talk for hours.
Sader credits his success to Jad and admits he is just as proud of his father as his father is of him. The inspirational duo loves to watch movies together in their spare time.
