«A brother is a friend given by nature» .
This quote from the poet Gabriel-Marie Legouvé perfectly illustrates the love between Rayce, a 6-year-old boy, and his little brother with Down syndrome, Tripp.
In 2019, their mother posted a video in which the eldest is seen singing Justin Bieber’s 10,000 Hours to his brother. The lyrics of this love song perfectly sum up their relationship:
“I will spend ten thousand hours and ten thousand more
If that’s what it takes to know that sweet heart of yours
I may never make it, but I’ll try
Whether it’s ten thousand hours or the rest of my life I’m gonna love you»
“ That’s how Rayce and Tripp bond. He sings this song to her all the time. He is convinced that she is telling about her relationship with her brother ,” explained Nicole, her mother.
Unsurprisingly, his Facebook video quickly went viral. This sequence overflowing with love has garnered more than 50,000 shares, 2.6 million views and thousands of comments.
“I’m really happy because it can help those who are in the same situation, show them that it’s going to be okay. It also gives a positive view of trisomy 21 ,” she said.
This mother of five discovered that her baby had Down syndrome while she was pregnant: “I have four other children, and I just wanted them to love her like they love each other” , she indicated. His wishes were granted.
Indeed, the whole sibling fell in love with little Tripp. At that time, the newborn was hospitalized in intensive care due to health problems. Fortunately, his condition improved and he was able to meet his brothers and sisters on Christmas Eve.
