Down Syndrome, See the Ability - Melissah Mullins
Every single one of our children is different, they each have different talents, different growth spurts, different hair colour.. And they thrive when we focus and celebrate their different abilities instead of seeing the dis-abilities.
To mark World Downs Syndrome Day I’m joined in this very special episode by Melissah Mullins, The Mind of a Mammy - a mum of 3 girls, Evie, Daisy and Ruby to talk about how she is raising them to be strong, capable and confident.
At 25, Melissah became a mum for the first time to Evie, who just happened to have an extra chromosome.
What was a shock at the time and something that sounded bad - in fact is what makes Evie incredibly special with boundless love - she spreads joy everywhere she goes.
And now, Melissah is doing incredible work with her page The Mind of a Mammy to help us all see the ability and change what we think about Down Syndrome and to raise money for Down Syndrome Ireland - DONATE LINK
