When a proud Mama posted her beautiful daughter on the Changing the Face of Beauty Facebook page the picture caught my eye. This girl was not only gorgeous but she was riding a horse rodeo style. I immediately had to know her story and I knew I wanted to share her with all of you!
Today I introduce you to the amazing Mahala in her Mothers words….
1. How old is Mahala?
Mahala is 7 yrs old.
2. When did you find out about her diagnosis of Down Syndrome (before or after birth) and how did you react to the news?
I did not have the prenatal testing. I was 45 yrs old and at high risk because of my age, and there was some risk in the testing. Also my doctor could not guarantee 100% accuracy in the test. I was told MANY of the test results for an amniocentesis were incorrect.
