In a world where millions of babies are being aborted and some even having their body parts sold for profit, comes a little girl named Connie-Rose Seabourne.
Connie-Rose was born with Down’s Syndrome and in the two years of her life, her parents have always heard what a great smile she has. It isn’t her smile that captures my attention, it’s her eyes. She has the most luminous clear blue eyes that capture the innocence of childhood beyond whatever words could be written to describe them. The Bored Panda reports:
“Connie was born two months premature to parents Julie and Peter and wasn’t diagnosed with Down syndrome until she was two weeks old. “We have friends whose children have been diagnosed with Down’s syndrome and have had nothing but positive experiences of children with the diagnosis. It’s just another little baby who needs to be loved.””
Her mother submitted her photo to a modeling agency and not only did they accept her daughter, but she’s now under contract with two agencies.
Connnie-Rose’s parents didn’t plan on the responses that they received regarding the modeling projects.
“When I spoke to the agencies about her Down’s syndrome diagnosis, no one even batted an eyelid,” Julie told Dailymail. “She absolutely loved it. She follows direction very well and she has so much fun in front of the cameras.”
Nor do they push their daughter to vicariously live out their own dreams.
“As soon as it gets too much for her or she doesn’t like it, we’ll stop. The first sign that she’s not enjoying it, we’ll stop”
The little girl’s popularity as a toddler model rejects the examples of beauty embraced by the popular media in all forms of advertising and entertainment.
Although the media and entertainment industries flood humanity with their versions of beauty, often narcissistically so, Connie-Rose is a prime example of the extraordinary beauty of children and their value know’s no bounds.
