My granddaughter Victoria (Tori) is 12 years old. She is about the size of her 4 year brother. She loves music; Whitney Huston, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift and Journey to name just a few. She loves to dance and she loves pretty things; long hair, pretty dresses, anything sparkly and shoes. She has been through so much in her short 12 years. She was born with a congenital heart defect, spine defect, cleft lip and palette, kidney defect, hearing defect and numerous other issues, all requiring surgical repair. She required a feeding tube until she was 5 years old. I am amazed at her resiliency and love for life. The older she gets the more I am aware that she will need assistance in her later years. Supporting the Down Syndrome Association of MN helps to support kids in MN like my Tori.
