When parents discover that their child has a Down syndrome, they face fear and anxiety. The stereotypical notion of the condition paints a dreadful picture in their mind – their kid having a life with no potential, no true joys.

However, it doesn’t have to be a reality filled with sorrow. Your child will still have milestones to achieve. He or she will be able to experience a real happiness and true sadness. Down syndrome will not define your child’s whole life. In recent years, children with this condition stepped into the limelight, proving to the rest of the world that they shouldn’t be put in the corner. And this little girl is of them.
The aspiring model
7-year-old Grace loves to be in front of the camera. Despite being born with a Down syndrome, she smiles with confidence as she adorably poses for photographs.
The little one is determined to prove that her condition, which has a significant impact on the fundamental aspects of her life, doesn’t define her and her parents help her with that.
When Cheryl and John Wharton found out that their baby has a Down syndrome, they were devastated. Cheryl says:
Of course, I was devastated at first. There’s such a lot of negativity surrounding Down Syndrome. I cried for 24 hours. But we got up the next morning and said no matter what, this is our baby. And from that point on, we have just celebrated everything about her. She is incredible.
Six years later, Grace achieved a success her parents didn’t even think is possible. Cheryl noticed that her daughter likes being in front of the camera, so she answered the ad on Facebook that was looking for a model with a disability. Since then, Grace’s modeling career quickly took off as she signed with an agency and has worked with Disney and CBeebies.
Everyone has always said she’s really cute and she loves posing, she loves showing off her catwalk modeling. She absolutely loves the attention. Grace is definitely one in a million.
Grace and her family want to raise awareness about the Down syndrome and show to other families like theirs that everything is possible.
This is not the only success story
Connie-Rose Seabourne, the adorable toddler who was also born with Down syndrome, is taking over the modeling world, too.
The little one has already landed two contracts and is planning to become Britain’s next top model. Good luck to the girls, we are sure this is not the last time we hear about them.
