Meghan Sings Her Heart Out!
Meghan Sings Her Heart Out!

Meghan is 28 years old and has Down syndrome, but she is so much more than a young lady with a genetic DIS-ability! She lives an awesome life! Meghan lives at home with her family, works in the local grocery store bakery department, is active in her community, swims, reads, does Zumba at the ‘Y,’ cheers in Special Olympics, helps out with the children on Sundays and sings in her church choir! Her favorite things are reading, word-search, watching TV, videos and movies, eating and treating her family out to dinner, playing on the Wii, hanging out with her friends and singing! In this photo she’s at choir practice, front row center in the blue top, right before church service starts, singing her heart out to Jesus! She also signs many of the words, and is a blessing to everyone in the service. We are so very proud of her and we are so thankful that the doctors were all wrong when they told us how little she would really do in her life! She’s an amazing young lady!

There is no one like Meghan. Before worship, you can find her giving out hugs and smiles to anyone that crosses her path. She is so real in her worship. She sings her heart out, and is a great example for all of us. I love her heart, her genuine kindness and her love for our Lord!! You go girl!! :)

I love seeing Meghan when she's at work in the bakery. She is a hard worker and takes pride in what she does. Her smile is heart warming and you can't help smiling back at this beautiful young lady. I'm honored to be able to vote for this precious young lady.
