On 3/21, World Down Syndrome Day, the DSAA is hosting an Over 21 Fundraiser and Silent Auction. It is also an opportunity to meet three adults who have Down syndrome and are living and thriving in Atlanta. One of our guests is Lori Berger Bryan.
Lori Berger Bryan is the daughter of the fierce advocate and mother, Robyn Berger. Robyn raised Lori to believe that she could do anything she set her mind to and she should have every opportunity that her other neurotypical kids would have. Robyn was told to institutionalize her daughter because she was born with Down Syndrome. Robyn said absolutely NOT and so they say, "the rest is history."
Lori was mainstreamed in school long before it was so wildly accepted. After completing school she worked as a preschool teacher's classroom aid for 20 years. After retiring from the preschool job, Lori has most recently worked at Children’s Health Care of Atlanta for the last 5 years as a stock technician. As part of her social life, Lori participated in a trip to Israel. On this trip she met the love of her life. After living together for many years, Lori and David got married and have been married for 14 years. Because Robyn wouldn’t take no for an answer and because of Lori’s drive, she has achieved more than anyone could have imagined!
Come meet Lori on 3/21! Register here
