This Is Beth

3/21 is World Down Syndrome Day. Where we bring awareness to the world, about everyone who has 3 copies of that 21st chromosome. I've read stories of kids with Down Syndrome who 'light up a room', 'make friends wherever they go' and 'people are drawn to my child'.

Beth wasn't like that. She still isn't. As a 28 year old, she's shy, she struggles with her speech and she knows people have a hard time understanding her. But once she gets to know you, she can be a goofball.



 Beth is a daughter, granddaughter, sister, niece and cousin



 




 She's a sister-in-law...




And an Aunt




Beth usually doesn't like to be the center of attention

 




 She loves to play board games
Uno, Mexican Train, Scrabble...


 



And she's really good at them too!




She doesn't always like to have her picture taken






But most of the time Beth just likes to have fun. 
She doesn't judge.
She's content with her life.
She's fearfully and wonderfully made.
And God has a plan for her life.

This is Beth
