Testimonial by her Auntie Emma Tuite

Caoimhe came into our lives 3 1/2 years ago and has brought nothing but love and happiness to our family. She is an amazing little character with a great sense of fun and mischief. She has achieved so much already but life has been a roller coaster at times between hospital stays, heart surgery and appointments and therapies, but she has fabulous support from her amazing mammy (my sister) and daddy, brother and sister, cousins, nanas and grandads, aunties and uncles.

We have all learned so much from her, I for one never thought I’d be learning Lamh signs for all the nursery rhymes in my 30’s.

Caoimhe has had such brilliant experiences in The Down Syndrome Centre and has come on so well with the help and support of everyone there. She attends SKIP and loves her teacher Dani and all her pals.

We all celebrate when Caoimhe reaches another milestone, which she does in her own time and won’t be rushed by anyone, as we know that all her hard work is paying off

Note from Mammy, Carina McNally

This year caoimhe has faced a couple of new challenges but like with everything she is tackling them head on and nothing is holding her back. She is starting pre school in September so we’re looking forward to this great new chapter in her life. She continues to amaze us every day with her strength and determination (and cheeky charm) she has so much to give to this world and we’re blessed that we get to call her ours

Testimonial by Dani Dowling, SKIP Coordinator

A year went by since my last testimonial and Caoimhe continues to amaze me! This year was a big year for her as she started walking, and with her determination I’m sure won’t be long before she’s playing chase with her siblings and friends!! Her speech is constantly improving and it’s great to watch her develop friendships and having fun in SKIP. I’m looking forward to next year, I’m sure it’ll be a great one!
