Every mum thinks their own child is particularly special – but mum Hayley Galeniowski has more reason to feel proud than most. For daughter Natty, 5, has Down’s Syndrome. At birth she almost died and when she was two she had to have open heart surgery.
But with the encouragement of her loving family – mum Hayley, dad Bob and older sister Mia – Natty flourished. And now she does some modelling! Her latest photoshoot is for My Child & Me, a magazine for parents of young children with additional needs.
Natty’s mum Hayley tells me her daughter has now been taken on by some London modelling agencies. Natty has already appeared in a number of children’s clothing catalogues.
