"You're all every bit of lovely"

 

Our young friend, Tiana, heard of a friend's new baby. She heard that the baby has Down Syndrome.

Here is her letter to that family:

 

My name is Tiana and I am 13 years old.

 

I have Down Syndrome. I am in Grade 7.  I heard you had a baby girl. I am so happy. 

 

My mom said you was to have a baby with Down Syndrome.

 

I’'m so happy. I wanted to tell you. Down Syndrome has extra chromosome. It is special.

 

When you come to our town maybe I can meet her. I love babies.

 

I 'd be honoured to see your most beautiful babies face.

 

There are so many things she can do.

 

I am a dancer. She can dance. 

I dance jazz. Dance jazz too. 

I am a rhythmic gymnastic girl. She can do rhythmic gymnastics. 

I play soccer. She can play soccer. 

I take swimming classes. She can take swimming. 

I am playing the piano and the xylophone in band. I will help her practise an instrument.

 

My forever family loves me.

This girl ... your little girl is a first and forever love. She will be happy and friendly.

 

I think you are a happy love family.

 

I hope you have a happy life.

 

I love to be your friend.

 

You're all every bit of lovely.
