I read something beautiful today.
Only a few weeks age - on August 12, I put a picture
Karrie on her first day her junior year high school on
social media. I came home to quite a few Facebook friends
who also have daughters with Down syndrome who were
asking where I buy Karrie' s clothes that were bullshitting yet
I told them all that we shop at Wet Seal and that Karrie
wanted to be a model for them. A Facebook page went up the
next afternoon, intending to catch the attention of Wet Seal.
And did we ever!
Wet Seal challenged Karrie to get ', 000 "likes" on that
Wednesday by Friday - she was ever ' 1, 000 before neen on
A let of big brands may talk abaut diversity and inclusion.
but when my daughter hiting, 000 Facebook likes, Wet Seal
told me that they were going to fly me and my daughter to
California to do a professional modeling shoot. I don' t think
I' ever seen my daughter so excited. I heard seme people
tell me not to encourage her to do things that "she might not
be able to do," but to me, Karrie represents hew we don' t
need to place limits en ourselves.
I Ieve that even during the day itself she showed me exactly
what happens when yeu start underestimate sameone. All it
is - is a reflection on you.
