This is Down syndrome.

She has wheat colored hair that shines in the sunlight like strands of woven gold. Her eyes are so blue that they rival the sky for beauty. Her smile shows pure joy and ignites laughter in the soul of the most downtrodden. Her hugs bring forth contentment. Her love shines through her every action.
Her stubbornness gives testament to true determination. Her struggles give way to perseverence. Her delays demonstrate patience. Her surprises teach trust.

This is Down syndrome.
