Today a lovely positive little piece came out in our local newspaper.
I was immediately struck by the positive headline. No 'Downs Girl' here as so many of the nationals have previously written about Natty. And the article quite rightly praised Mia for being as much a part of the success story.
The picture shows 'No Papps Natty' holding her glass star award for Child of Courage or Achievement of the Year, an accolade which she won for opening the doors of the advertising world to children with disabilities, changing the face of beauty and also being an inspirational role model to many families, changing perceptions of Down's Syndrome and providing hope (her middle name as it happens).
