Who I Am

The International Down Syndrome Coalition for Life's campaign for WDSD is "Who I Am" - based on a song by Sarah Conant.

When I asked Kayla, "Who are you?" She said, "I'm Kayla!"

So there you have it. She's Kayla. Just Kayla.

But if you asked me who she is I'd say (besides the obvious of being my daughter and a great big sister) I'd say she's an almost 10 year old girl who is:

loved
valued
wanted
included
friendly
funny
creative
imaginative
strong-willed (because that sounds more positive than stubborn!)
confident
independent
defiant
moody
challenging
opinionated
adventurous
determined
world-traveler (we went to Denmark and Sweden last summer)


I'd tell you that she likes
popcorn
cereal
pizza
ham
cheese
yogurt
sleep-overs
roller coasters (she doesn't get that from me!)
water parks
beaches
playgrounds
being outside
roller skating
movies
hotels (she's always saying "I want to go to a hotel to sleep.")
friends
drawing
painting
going to the ballet
playing dress-up

That's Kayla. She is who she is and that's all she needs to be.

Here she is all dressed up when we went to the ballet to see Snow White.

 Enjoy this video, set to the song of Who I Am...
