TULLAHOMA, Tenn. (WKRN) – It didn’t take 11-year-old AddiGrace very long to decide who she was going to invite to her school’s Sadie Hawkins dance.
The West Middle School student wanted to surprise Jaydon, a classmate with Down syndrome, and ask if he would be her date.
But for AddiGrace, the move was very personal. Her little 2-year-old brother Jaxx also has Down syndrome, so she holds the genetic disorder close to her heart.
The 11-year-old also tries to spread the word and awareness about using the “R” word, which is considered derogatory and offensive to those with intellectual disabilities.
