Ivy’s mom Kristin has every right to be super proud of her. Ivy is one of four girls and Mom feels that having a child with Down syndrome in a spotlight such as this serves as a representation for all the other children who have this condition.

Going From Being An Effort To Being Natural

Kristen is extremely happy that more companies are now making an effort to use children in their print materials that have different forms of disabilities. It is her hope that this will become the norm instead of having to be something that has to be consciously worked at.
