Serena nominated her daughter Kristine. Kristine is 15 years old.
Serena writes: “Kristine is a 15-year-old girl with Down Syndrome. Like many others, she struggles with weight and together we struggle to find pants and jeans that fit her. We have even bought the stretchy bands to put over her jeans at the top to keep her behind from hanging out. Teachers have written note after note home because Kristine’s pants aren’t “appropriate” and the teachers don’t want other kids making fun. Because she is so short and round it is hard to dress her like a cute teen girl because nothing fits. Her mom has started buying elastic waist old lady capris and maternity pants for her because that is what fits. Just one time we would like her to have JUST ONE PAIR OF JEANS!
How would a pair of our jeans make a difference in her life?
Kristine would be able to hopefully have JUST ONE PAIR OF JEANS that fit her like a teen girl deserves!
