“Grey’s Anatomy” Star Shares Beautiful Pic Of Daughter With Down Syndrome

“Grey’s Anatomy” star Caterina Scorsone shared a beautiful pic of her daughter, Paloma Michaela, who has down syndrome. She posted the photo on her Instagram account (@caterinascorsone) and captioned the message with “differences are beautiful”.

October is Down Syndrome Awareness month and this was the 36 year-old actress’s way of bringing attention to it by posting a heartwarming pic of the two of them together elated in the camera. She went on to point out statistics about the genetic disorder so people are better informed when it comes to this condition.

She wrote:

“Parents don’t have a 1 in 700 ‘RISK’ of having a baby with Down syndrome. Parents have a 1 in 700 CHANCE of having a baby with Down syndrome, just like they have a 50 percent CHANCE of having a girl and a 50 percent CHANCE of having a boy. (With some beautiful variations in there as well). Differences are beautiful. Language changes how people think. Words are important.”
Scorsone’s daughter will turn 2 in November.
