Arthur Fortaliza cleans tables and chairs three mornings a week at Mira Mesa Lanes. The 43-year-old with Down syndrome is a mainstay there.
Here's the link to the article:
A Decade Cleaning Tables at the Bowling Alley
I like to find and read articles about adults who have Down syndrome,to find out what type of life they have.I have a fear of dying and not being here to care for Ruby when she is an older adult.The article above mentions that this man's parents have died and that he lives with his brother.I hope that someday if Ruby needs them her siblings will be willing to care for her.My children and I have discussed this a little and have talked about how Ruby has enough siblings to help divide up her care if my husband and I die or unable to care for her.The siblings could take turns and each have her for a month.Just a thought.
I know that ultimately God is in control.
