I would definitely take care of him and have him stay with me. I would also hire a maid who would take care of him when I am not at home. He is my brother and it is not his fault that he is not normal. I am sure that if it is the other way around and I am the "special" sibling, my brother would also take care of me. Family is very important in our culture. We do not put old parents to nursing homes and we do not leave special children in orphanages. We take care of them until they die.

If I was able to care for my special needs brother I would. As it is God chose to give me a special needs child of my own. He is 2 1/2 years old and is only now learning to walk and talk.

I sure will especially if my parents aren't capable of nursing them..say, they're too old to run around with our special brother. And am used to getting the family responsibilities next to my parents since am the eldest. I can't also dare look at my brother who is a special child without somebody taking care of him, pitiful and unattended...that's just unacceptable on my part as the able sister. :)

(special child) you have to ask the question, who will watch him, while you are working... It would not be something you could just jump into without at least planning
