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:
strong-willed (because that sounds more positive than stubborn!)
world-traveler (we went to Denmark and Sweden last summer)
I'd tell you that she likes
roller coasters (she doesn't get that from me!)
hotels (she's always saying "I want to go to a hotel to sleep.")
going to the ballet
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...
