Thanks to a viral video interview, Sader Issa has found a way to share with the world how his father's love transcended all other obstacles and made him the successful doctor that he is today. Despite being diagnosed with down Syndrome, this father never failed to fulfill his role and support his son.

Sader told the Syrian Society for Social Development all about being raised by his dad who has Down Syndrome, this is their inspirational story.

Sader's Childhood Was Just Like Any Other's

Sader was born, to a family that welcomed him, and wanted to spoil and love him. When he thinks back on his childhood, he reminisces on nothing but good and happy memories. He never once mentions being embarrassed by his father or thinking that his family was different. Instead, he remembered feeling very loved. In fact, his father would actually make the time to bond with him, spending time wrestling, thumb wrestling, among other games.

Luckily for the family, the community accepted them and even looked up to the love and peaceful bonds they all shared. To each other, and to the outside world, they were just another happy family, finding their strength in their love for one another.

Shame Was Replaced By Pride

The beautiful thing about children, is that they are not born separating people into categories. They just long to love and be loved. Thinking someone is different or being ashamed for having a parent with a disability is only taught through society's conditioning. Sader isn’t ashamed of his father. He never was. Instead, he's proud because it's thanks to him that he is the man that he is today. Not only is he successful and healthy, but he also feels proud of the values he developed thanks to his family's upbringing.

Others are even envious of his ability to form meaningful and loving relationships, just like the one he shares with both of his parents. His father's condition was always a blessing, teaching him at a young age how to love strongly, and not cave into the negative thinking of others. He became independent, generous, and kind thanks to his experience of living so closely with someone who had Down Syndrome but defied the odds.

The Father And Son Duo Took Life On Together

Sader didn't feel like his father was held back by his condition. In fact, the duo even used to work together at the wheat mill near their home to save for college. Sader's father was always committed to working hard and providing a secure and stable life for his son. He wanted him to study and follow his passion of becoming a doctor. His father never even expected anything in return.

“I’m proud of my father. Throughout my life he has been the greatest support for me when I needed it,"“I think I would’ve been much less excited about life and much less passionate with what I do if I didn’t have my special father,” explains Sader proudly.

Sader's Father Became A Role model

There was something special about the way Sader's father always worked hard, exceeding expectations but never asking for anything in return. Seeing his son's happiness and success was enough for him. Now, seeing his son become a successful dentist is the best gift he could imagine.

“It’s possible to see when his eyes are filled with joy and satisfaction as if to express: yes, I have Down syndrome, but I raised this man and did everything in my power to make him become a doctor and help others.” says Sader.

The beautiful part is that Sader might have not become as successful if he didn't truly look up to his dad. He always saw him as a role model and a figure of perseverance, positivity, and determination. The way his father led his life, overcoming obstacles on a daily basis was not only inspiring to others but to Sader as well.​

The Power Of Love Is Unconditional

Just like any other parent, their priority is to make their child feel loved and live a happy life.

The World's Oldest Person Just Turned 119, But What's Fascinating Is How She Spends Her Days

The oldest person in the world just recently celebrated her 119th birthday in a nursing home in southwestern Japan. Now if you're picturing an immobile old lady who does nothing bt spend her days in bed, think again. This woman may be at the end of her days, but she is still full of life.

The way that she spends her every day should be an inspiration to all of us that we're never too old to put in the effort everyday to live it to the fullest. After all, what's the point in living if we don't actually feel alive? Here's how she does it.

She Has Watched The Whole World Change

When you've lived almost a century and a quarter long, you're bound to probably feel like you're in your own science fiction movie by the end. The world has drastically changed over the years. When Kane Tanaka was born, in 1903 in Japan, life was much simpler. This was the same year that the Wright brothers powered their first flight. Kane grew up around her nine siblings before she married a rice shop owner when she turned 19 years old.

Since then she has lived through wonders including two world wars, two pandemics, the rise of technologies, and more life changes than we could possibly imagine.

Today, Her Routine Is Quite Unique

​Just because she has lived a long and meaningful life, doesn't mean that she's done living each day to the fullest. What's really fascinating about Kane's long life is the way that she chooses to live every day.

It turns out that even at her nursing home, Kane wakes up every morning bright and early at 6 a.m. and spends part of her day studying mathematics. She keeps her mind sharp and alert by spending the day solving number puzzles and playing board games. She has gotten so good at this that in 2019, she became an expert in the game of Othello, a strategy board game, even beating the nursing home's younger staff.

She Has Broken New Records

Kane is now part of the Guinness World Records and has been since turned 117 and became Japan's oldest living person. On her birthday, Guinness even tweeted her a happy birthday and shared a video of her from 2019, when she was officially given the title.

Unfortunately, while Kane has adapted to much of the modern world, she hasn't made it as far as setting her own Twitter account to reply. Nonetheless, everyone who saw the tweet was inspired by her will to live as well as the way she chooses to live.

She's Got The Right Attitude

Tanaka sounds like a delightful woman who emits all kinds of positive vibes. Her personality exceeds her intelligence and love for math because just like the average person, Tanaka also shares a strong love for fizzy drinks and chocolate. In fact, when she was gifted a box of chocolates during her Guinness ceremony, someone asked her how many chocolates she wanted to eat, she replied, "100." And why shouldn't she? When you've lived that long there is no reason not to indulge and maximize life's little pleasures.

Tanaka carried the same attitude when she was crowned Japan's oldest person at 117 and celebrated with a coke. Tanaka's positivity is radiant and comes across in all her gestures. When she was sent flowers on Respect for the Aged Day, she expressed her gratitude by making a peace sign.

Maybe Chocolate Is The Key

Tanaka has another three years to go until she breaks the all-time record for the oldest person that has lived, which right now is held by Jeanne Louise Calment from France, who lived to 122 years. Currently, she holds the record for the world's oldest currently living person since Jeanne has since passed.

What's interesting about these two women is their love for their chocolate. They say that Jeanne ate two pounds of chocolate a week! Could chocolate be the new fountain of youth? The answer is probably in how these two women carried themselves in their youth and the way they're able to see the good in the everyday. However, Japan is known to hold one of the longevity rates in the world which have increased significantly in the last 60 years.

24-Year-Old Single Teacher Adopted Her Own Student To Save Him From A Life Of Trauma

A 24-year-old woman is making headlines as she proves to the world that you're never too young (or old) to change lives. She went above and beyond the caretaker role as a teacher when she noticed one of her students suffering.

The young boy, not even yet 8 years-old, had lived in over 10 foster cares and was on the lookout for the next one that would take him. So his teacher decided that she couldn't just abandon him to fend for himself. However, her journey was met with its own obstacles....

Meet William, A Boy Who Suffered From PTSD

Meet William, a boy who has known that life can be cruel from a tender age. At just four years old, he had experienced enough trauma to be diagnosed with PTSD. He was living from one foster home to another, never getting too comfortable because he never could call them home.

At school, he needed extra guidance and worked one-on-one with a behavioral specialist named Paige who could see his evident struggle. She spent three hours a day focusing on him and noted that "he was very isolated because he didn’t know coping skills" she told Good Morning America. "Since I was one-on-one with him, a lot of our time was spent working on coping skills, behavioral skills, talking about how we behave in school, those types of things."

Paige Quickly Felt Connected With William

I knew it. #singlemom #momsoftiktok #SimsSelves #fyp

At the time Paige Bramlett worked with William as his behavioral specialist, he was still just a kindergarten student with so much life yet to live even though he had experienced more than any boy his age ever should.

Paige learned of the many homes William had had to live in, in just four years. Paige told their story on TikTok, where it has been gaining viral attention for its heartwarming progression. The more Paige got to know William, the more she felt a calling to help him get through, but she had no idea how much of an impact she would be making on his life.

One Day William Stopped Coming

The system didn’t win. #FosterCare #Adopted #Adoption

Paige explained that both her and William's journeys completely changed when he stopped coming to school one day: “one day, he didn’t show up to school, and he had never missed a day. I ran into his caseworker collecting his things in the hallway. She told me they were looking for a forever home for him to be placed in."

So Paige, without hesitating, proceeded to introduce herself to the caseworker then asked what she would have to be the forever home William has been searching for.

Paige's Choice Wasn't Supported By Her Family

Paige was only in her early twenties when she made the decision to adopt her student. Her friends and family warned her and told her that was too young. They advised her that no one would want to date her and that she should wait until she was married. They thought she was being insane.

Yet, Paige embraced the criticism and followed her calling. She knew that the good would balance out any risks and that at least she and the boy would always have each other.

Breaking The Trauma Cycle

Paige's strong stance came from her understanding of how badly William needed a safe home and how crucial it was for someone to step up. It was easy for everyone to justify why they couldn't do it, but it all takes to save him is for someone to at least try. Plus Paige didn't rush the process. She fostered him for a whole year before making it official. The day she finally adopted him she shared. “Now, he is adopted, loved, and chosen. My son. We are learning together every day."

What Paige understood, especially thanks to her line of work, was the detrimental effect of trauma on a child's brain and the lifelong process of healing that they would require. She understood how the system worked and that it wasn't always in favor of the child.

Advocating for all children in the foster system she explains: "They don’t see the prolonging of cases that stay open for years — ignoring the voices of children. They don’t see the 100’s messages and phone calls that are IGNORED by caseworkers/people who are in charge of the wellbeing of CHILDREN. They don’t see the hurt, they don’t hear the cries and screams. They don’t."

Yet Adoption Wasn't Easy

Paige also understands that no everyone can foster children and that it takes a lot of effort to actually make it work. In one of her videos she explains: “foster care is so hard...but worth it.” She describes many of the happy memories she and William can cherish together from skiing to dancing, which make the reward so worth the work.

Paige also had to adapt to being a mom to a 7-year-old while being so young herself. "It’s sometimes hard for me to say out loud, like, oh my gosh, I’m a mom. But I'm so thankful for what I’ve been given and for how I’ve become a mom. You don’t expect it to happen so early, but I know it’s how I was chosen to be a mom."

William Took Time To Feel Safe Again

It wasn't easy for William to forget all his trauma ad just move on. It took time for him to believe that he was actually finally safe and that he wouldn't be made to leave again to another home. Because he had been hurt many times, he was always scared that he would lose everything in a second. To manage his anxiety Paige explains: "when I would say goodbye, I would tell him that I would see him tomorrow. He struggled with sleeping and nightmares, so I would tell him sweet dreams, and we worked on skills that would go beyond the classroom."

"It was hard to get his head wrapped around feeling secure, that he won’t have more changes." This is why William needed a permanent home, so he could finally start healing and actually being a kid again.

Their Community Supports Them

Paige and William have enjoyed creating new memories and traditions that they could carry on in their newfound family."We are enjoying creating our own traditions in our own little home this year," To show their support, their community even surprised them with a $10,000 Christmas gift .

Everyone can help these children, even if they can't foster or adopt themselves. Paige takes the time to share with her community all the ways they can make a difference such as donating, getting involved, babysitting, advocating, preparing meals, and educating themselves on childhood trauma.
