Our guest today shares her story and the story of her little sister Mia.

Pulling from her experience as an Early Years Educator, Megan knew that something was not quite right with Mia when she started to miss her milestones.

During many doctors visits and testing, Megan's family found that Mia had a rare condition called Chromosome Deletion Syndrone 13q.

Megan talks to us about the impact Mia has had on her life and how she is a joyful, bubbly little girl, and normalised Mia's condition. 

The phrase 'It's okay to be different' has never been truer.
