The Hollis Boys, 6 And 7, “Speaking Up For Our Sisters” With Down Syndrome

“We live in a small town in Central Illinois and woke one morning in April 2011 to find our home and cars had been spray painted,” says mom Anne Hollis.


The family and their house had been attacked because of her two daughters that have Down Syndrome. The disgusting humans spray painted words like “RETARDS” and “Get Outta here”.

The family recently adopted two adorable girls with Down Syndrome from Ukraine. Instead of remaining quiet about it, Anne’s two sons said they wanted to make a video, to “Speak up for our sisters.”


The Hollis Boys, ages 6 and 7, wanted to defend their sisters and put together a video asking people to stop using the word “retard”. It’s so terrible that the family had to go through such a hate-filled ordeal when it should have been one of the most enjoyable days of their lives.

Lets help put an end to the “R” word by SHARING this video and their story with your friends on Facebook!
