Meet Connie-Rose Seabourne, a two-year-old girl from the UK. Connie-Rose has Down syndrome, and is known among friends and family for her beautiful, cheeky smile.
Indeed, her smile has already won Connie TWO modelling contracts.
“When I spoke to the agencies about her Down’s syndrome diagnosis, no one even batted an eyelid,” Julie told the Daily Mail.
“She absolutely loved it. She follows direction very well and she has so much fun in front of the cameras.”
Connie was born two months premature to parents Julie and Peter. She wasn’t diagnosed with Down syndrome until she was two weeks old.
“We have friends whose children have been diagnosed with Down’s syndrome and have had nothing but positive experiences of children with the diagnosis. It’s just another little baby who needs to be loved.”
Julie now visits other parents of children with Down’s Syndrome to try and help families who feel overwhelmed with the diagnosis.
“Some parents struggle with the idea of Down’s Syndrome initially and think that life isn’t going to be the same again. I try to explain just how much support there is out there for them.”
“The inclusiveness and equality that my family has experienced has been amazing. It’s absolutely fantastic that Connie-Rose will be in the public eye — it’s just so positive.”
