Heath White, a pilot and FBI agent, said he had always sought perfection, he would never settle for anything less.
When Heath and his wife were expecting their second child, doctors gave them news they never expected – their daughter had Down syndrome. The news to Heath was especially difficult to grasp. “My main concern was what people would think about me…What weakness inside me caused that?” He explained he did everything he could to try to convince Jennifer to abort the pregnancy, and while she said he was never abusive to her, she acknowledge he was not supportive at all.
Paisley White was born on March 16, 2007. Heath struggled to come to accept what had happened. One night, while holding and tickling Paisley, her smile and laugh triggered something deep within him. He realized how wrong he had been all along, and that his beautiful daughter was just like any other child. He wanted the whole world to know how much he cared for and loved his little girl.
