The doctors told Renée that she was expecting a child. They are the parents of a girl with Down syndrome.
Due to the significant medical demands of her child, the doctors advised her to place the child in an orphanage.
They specified that the child would wear diapers until the age of 18.
Renée, on the other hand, had no intention of giving up.
She was convinced that she could make a difference in the life of the young girl. The girl’s name was Kennedy.
The child was eventually diagnosed with leukemia. Despite that, she managed to survive.
Kennedy defied the fears of her opponents. Against all odds, she defeated leukemia.
She joined dance competitions at the state level because dance was her lifelong passion.
Despite these challenges, she became a role model for major organizations. And the world fell in love with her at the first glimpse of her radiant smile.
Kennedy eventually found romantic success. Matthew is a kind person with Down syndrome.
Renée saw that the idea of the medical community that a child born with Down syndrome would never reach their full potential was wrong.
Kennedy turned out to be healthier than average.
The most important qualities are not speed or strength, but tenacity and the joy of living.
Families like Renée and Kennedy, who have children with disabilities, serve as role models for others.
