She Makes My Heart Really Nice

This week I’m featuring individuals with Down syndrome who are making their mark on the world.  Jenny and Austin are living the dream in the romance department.  Jenny thought she was just having her picture taken in Times Square in New York City.  But her boyfriend, Austin, had other plans.  Right after the picture was snapped, Austin got down on one knee and proposed to Jenny!  Many people believe the misconception that people with Down syndrome can’t get married, live on their own and have happy, productive lives.  More and more individuals with this condition are mainstreaming into American society.  When Austin was asked about his feelings for Jenny, he said, “She makes my heart really nice, and she’s the one for me.”  Isn’t that the wish of most every person today?
