She Changed My Life for the Better


I am a single parent to two amazing children. My son, Dustin, 27, lives with his family in Wayne County, and adores his little sister Lily to pieces! Lily is 10, sassy, smart and keeps me on my toes! She loves her kitty Sweetheart, school, reading, babies, dance class, playing baseball for the Miracle League, the park, drawing, playing the piano, and the computer. She was prenatally diagnosed with Trisomy 21 aka Down syndrome, a congenital heart defect, and Hydrops fetalis which led to rough start at birth. She has many medical diagnoses, has been through many surgeries, wears hearing aids, and recently diagnosed with scoliosis, but despite all of this, she is a survivor and doing well. She has changed my life for the better and because of her I am passionate about making a difference in the lives of others.
