Whether you are diagnosed w/ down syndrome, cerebral palsy, diabetes, obesity, or heart disease or whatever... it does not mean that you are no longer the same as everyone!! A diagnosis does not DEFINE you, you are who you are so let your light shine & break out & be who you were meant to be. God loves everyone. You are beautifully & wonderfully made...
