Time now for StoryCorps.

This oral history project is traveling the country, collecting interviews between friends and families. Today we hear from a daughter and her father.

--My name is David Warm, I'm 51 years old.
--My name is Mary Warm, and I'm here with my father.

Mary Warm is 15 years old and is in the seventh grade. She thought a StoryCorps conversation would help other kids who also have Down Syndrome1. So when the project stopped in Kansas City near their home, Mary and her father David came into talk.

--Mary, who was the, who's the most important person in your life?

--My sister, I really look up to her. And she's a great person, no matter her room is messy.

Do you remember when you were young, and on Friday nights you, and your sister and I would dance in the living-room. We'd take out the coffee table, we'd turn up the music and we'd get on our backs and be like bugs2.
--Yeah.
--Is there something about me that you've always wanted to know but you never asked me?
--Yes, Dad. How did you feel when I was born and how did mom feel?

--Well, that's a complicated question. Ah, we did know we are going to have a little girl, so that's the first thing we thought. We were really pleased to have another little girl, and then when we learned that you had Down Syndrome. I think we both decided3 that we had to figure it all out and so we went to classes and we read books, and we talked to other people. But about 2 months later, I think we’ve just kinda relaxed and realized we just needed to raise you of love, and teach you like we did to your big sister and everything will turn out all right. En, I think it has .

--Ah, you tell me I'm special all the time, what makes me special?
--Well, there is a lot of things that are special about you. En, you know your mom and I, we both really admire you because you are so positive, because you work really hard for everything that you get, and you go out your way to make sure that everybody is doing OK, not everybody is like that. In fact, I told somebody just the other day that I want to be more like my daughter Mary when I grow up. Do you have other questions?

--No, I don't. But do you?
--Back to me, ha~ What one thing about me upsets you, I'm not sure I wanted to ask . HAHA~~
--Er, if you like tell me exactly what to do.
--So you don't like it when I raise my voice. (Yeah)Are there some things you want to ask me about you?
--Yes, what is your goal for me?
--What is your mom and my goal for you?
--Yes.
--Well, I hope most of all that you keep your sunny personality no matter what you do, and I hope you find somebody you love and, and have a family, er, in whatever way you have a family. And we are really looking forward to getting to know you as an adult because you've been such a great kid.
--Thanks.
