National Siblings Day
National Siblings Day (also referred to as Sibling Day) is observed on April 10.
It is a day created to honor our brothers and our sisters. The bond between siblings is extra special, even more so if one of them has a life-long illness or disability.
“The siblings of special needs children are quite special. Absolutely accepting and totally loving, from birth, someone who is different mentally, and has a different way of seeing the world, is a wonderful trait. It’s a trait I wish there was another way of getting, but there isn’t. And it does involve a degree of not having it fantastically easy.” – Sally Phillips
