Hi! I am Brina Maxino and I have Down Syndrome! When I was just 9 days old, a doctor told my parents that because of my very bad condition, I will not live long.... But now, I am already 21 years old. I will turn 22 years old on my birthday, on August 31, 2018. When I was 11 years old, a Psychologist told my parents that I may not even finish Grade School. But now, I am an Assistant Teacher at Pean Integrated School of Parañaque. I graduated College with a degree of AB History from CAP College Foundation, Inc. I also graduated from a 2-year course in Associate in Arts and a 1-year course in General Clerical Skills.

I am a Special Olympics Global Youth Ambassador, traveling abroad, delivering inspirational speeches in the Philippines and abroad. I thank God for my life. I thank my family, my Lolos, Lolas, Uncles, Aunties and Cousins for their unconditional love and help. I thank my doctors, therapists and teachers for keeping me healthy and for teaching me.

To all parents -- please believe in your children with Down Syndrome, just like what my parents did.

To all PWDs like me --- believe in yourselves and pray to God always. You can do it. Just study and work hard.

To everyone --- please respect us and accept us. Please do not call us names like mongoloid, idiot, moron, stupid or retarded. It hurts us. Please be kind to us. Our disability does not mean inability. We can be useful members of society. Cheers to all Persons with Down Syndrome!

Happy Down Syndrome Consciousness Month!

Video Evidence of Recovery from Environmental Autism without Behavioral Interventions

I shared this video to raise awareness for people that do not understand a...utism, and for parents of these kids and others that do not understand or believe in recovery from it.

This video clearly shows that some children diagnosed with autism can recover without behavioral interventions in a very short time** by removing the poisons that vaccines and our environment put into them. Unfortunately, these treatments are rarely offered as an option when a child is diagnosed. This needs to change.

I, like most other parents that I have met that have (had) a child with a diagnosis, believe vaccines play at least a part in this epidemic. There needs to be more discussion about this. Vaccine injury aware doctors and parents should not be attacked or bullied into silence for asking legitimate questions as to why healthy children drastically changed after a round of vaccines. The NVICP has paid out almost $4 BILLION to the families of vaccine injury/death victims. An independent unbiased vaccine safety commission outside of the CDC (that holds 20 patents on vaccines) needs to be established.

The current rate of autism is 1 in 36 kids, up from 1 in 68 from just a few years ago, and 1 in 10,000 in the 80s. If the numbers keep climbing at the current rate, sometime in the 2030's, more than half of all children born will be diagnosed on the autism spectrum (80% of boys). I cannot understand how anyone can ignore this!!! These are our children and grandchildren! What number will it take for people to wake up and develop a sense of urgency? 1 in 10? 1 in 5?

Everyone, especially those with small children, needs to watch the movie Vaxxed: From Coverup to Catastrophe (Available on DVD and Amazon Prime). It tells the story of a senior CDC vaccine safety scientist turned whistleblower (Dr William Thompson) who came forward and admitted that his research group was ordered to destroy and manipulate data showing a causal link between vaccines and autism. The movie is about corruption within the CDC and it is not an "anti-vaccination" film that the CDC would like you to believe. Everyone should watch it and form their own opinion.

This issue needs to be taken more seriously. Dr William Thompson needs to be subpoenaed by Congress in order to legally tell his story. The inaction of the pharma campaign funded Congress to follow through on this investigation makes them part of the problem, and they have become a danger to the health and safety of children not only in America, but around the world. This same legislative body passed a law in the 80s shielding all vaccine manufacturers from liability for those injured or killed by vaccines.

What I did with my son is not the magic bullet that will fix all kids, but it has been replicated by others, and warrants further research. I was warned not to use these treatments with my son by medical professionals, but I was also not willing to wait for the research. When a child is injected with something and they exhibit the exact symptoms of being poisoned by it, it is not a coincidence. I knew my child needed treated for toxic metal poisoning and viral and fungal overgrowth.

**Note: For the record, I am not against behavioral interventions, and I believe that most children with a diagnosis would benefit from them. Joshua recovered so rapidly, I did not feel that he needed them, and I removed him from the waiting list after only 3 months of this treatment.

When nothing is certain, anything is possible.

Madeline was born with Down syndrome... Now she's proving to the world that her disability could never stop her from achieving all her dreams ❤️
Just look at her career choice today! 😮 😮 😮


"I thought he was adorable and I felt well, maybe the world might," Lucas' mom, Cortney Warren, said after her son was selected as the Gerber baby.

"It’s about not letting anyone feel different." ❤️

When Gordon Hartman watched his then-12-year-old daughter, Morgan, have trouble making friends in a swimming pool during a family vacation, he was heartbroken.

The McCallie Student Leadership Camp made their annual visit to SpiritHorse at Black Fox to help prepare for the Fall 2017 Semester of Therapeutic Riding. Their volunteer efforts always helps to position SpiritHorse to be able to keep the therapeutic riding FREE to special needs kids!

Another wonderful Spring Semester ends this week. How proud we are of our riders! We hope everyone enjoys their summer! Feel free to come visit us at the barn and get a free kitten. LOL We hope to see all of you again in the fall.

Opening Day for baseball, yes . . . but more importantly, OPENING DAY for our 14th semester of THERAPEUTIC RIDING FOR SPECIAL NEEDS KIDS at the Black Fox Equestrian Center!

SpiritHorse At Black Fox opens it's 14th semester today. Sadly, like some opening day baseball games we had to deal with the rain and reschedule today's sessions for a drier day.

Thanks to all of the individuals, companies, organizations and foundations who donate to keep this therapy FREE to the children and families we serve. Thank you!

2017 Spring Sessions start this week!

A vast array of behavioral, communication and sensory improvements can be achieved when riding horses. Many individuals that participate in equine therapy appreciate the bond that is developed between a loving human and their horse! #worldautismday #therapyhorse
