Before our daughter Lila was born, we learned she would have an atrioventricular septal defect that would require open heart surgery. We then learned she would have Down syndrome. From THAT day, people starting underestimating her - including my doctor.
However, today Lila is a thriving elementary school student who is happy, outgoing, sassy and so much more.
Lila’s diagnosis doesn’t define her, and we won’t let it limit her, either. We might have to fight a little harder to make sure others don’t limit her, but we know she’s giving it her all, so we will, too.
Every child is limitless when loved, accepted and included.
All children deserve an education that allows them to soar - even those who learn differently. Legislation is being considered in the 2020 session in South Carolina that could provide more options to help children like Lila reach their Limitless Potential.
