Quote of the day: Model says son with Down syndrome is “the good” in the world

Micah is different, but not in the way you’d think. His spirit radiates through a room, and everyone else feels it, too. There is so much darkness in this world, I know people need to be reminded of the good. Micah is the good….

I need people to see him for who he is. I need them to recognize his ability, and to allow themselves to give him the opportunity to succeed. I am so thankful to be living in our modern, accepting society, [but] with that being said, we still have a far way to go.

~ Model Amanda Booth, discussing her son, Micah, who was diagnosed with Down syndrome shortly after birth, as quoted by People.com, October 19, 2016
