Valentine’s Day holds a special place in their hearts, as they make sure to celebrate it in a memorable way every February. Although every day spent together is significant for the couple, Valentine’s Day is a particular occasion they both look forward to. Kris always creates a homemade card for Paul, and when he returns from work, they go out for a romantic dinner. Their bond is remarkable, and they cherish every moment they spend with each other.
Last year, their Valentine’s Day was exceptionally special as they celebrated their Silver Anniversary. By demonstrating that people born with Down syndrome are fully capable of experiencing and sustaining emotional connections in marriage, they proved everyone who doubted them wrong.
AN UNWAVERING COMMITMENT
Despite the challenges they have faced, the Scharound-DeForges’ relationship shows no signs of fading away. Unfortunately, Kris’ husband has recently been diagnosed with early-stage dementia, which is common among individuals with Down syndrome. He has moved to a nearby residence where he can receive the support he needs, but his wife is always by his side.
