Doctors wanted to put girl with Down syndrome in an institution – 15 years later, she’s a top model

Celebrating diversity and the differences between people in the world should be a given, regardless of what country or society you live in.

After all, how boring would the planet be if we all looked and acted exactly the same? Very boring is the answer, if you’re struggling.

In recent years efforts have been made to promote inclusion in the many walks of life. Some areas have found more success than others, sure, but the overall message is clear: just because someone is different from ‘the norm’ they’re no less capable of fantastic things.

Just ask Kennedy Garcia, a girl who doctors advised be committed to an institution when she was a newborn. Kennedy, from Colorado Springs, Colorado, has Down syndrome and, as per Metro, doctors told her mother that she would have a low quality of life as a result.

They feared she would have to wear nappies as an adult and it would kinder if she were placed in a specialized institution for her own well being.

As it were, Kennedy’s mom Renee opted to kick them all out of the hospital room. She wasn’t about to give up on her baby, and time has proven her wiser than all the doctors who advised her.
