Brody Klein is hard at work, getting these bath bombs packaged up and ready to sell. He and his mom, Jen Klein, made them. Now they’re hoping these bath bombs will help raise money for designer genes, a local group that provides support for families and people with Down Syndrome.
They’re also hoping their bath bombs might help raise awareness about down syndrome, something Klein knew nothing about when Brody was born 10 years ago.
“Back when Brody was born, I was naive,” Jen said. “I knew nothing about Down Syndrome.”
She quickly learned about the challenges and the rewards that come with raising a child with an extra chromosome.
“Every day he makes me smile,” Jen said. “Brody has taught me so much, how to be a better mom, how to be a better parent. I think he has brought awareness to our whole family. Everybody looks at people with disabilities different now because of Brody. And I mean, he just teaches us so much more every day we learn from him.”
Those are lessons she hopes her son will continue to teach others.
“On the outside, he may look different but inside he can do anything that he sets his mind to,” Jen said.
Right now, his mind is set on getting these bath bombs ready to sell. Brody is ready to show the world what he’s capable of, one bath bomb at a time.
To support Brody’s business, he sells his bath bombs on Metaverse. Just check out his page at “Brody’s buddies bath bombs.”
