My Emily
My Emily

My daughter Emily likes pizza and movies. She wants to drive, dance and listen to music. Like most teens, she wants to have the money do all these things, but finding a job isn't always easy for a 19 year old with Down syndrome. Emily, has found a way. She likes to paint and started selling her art on eBay. Her work, mostly abstract, appears in homes and galleries across the country. She has quite a following! She has bought a computer, redecorated her room and has more cd's than I can count!
