One smile on social media can change your day in a heartbeat, and that’s been happening a lot on the Gulf Coast, thanks to one little girl who may be familiar to you. She is News 5’s Chad Petri’s daughter, Destiny.Chad has posted many updates about Destiny since she was born with Down Syndrome last year. She has been in and out of the hospital with health problems. Chad and Amy say most of her health problems are related to feeding. She cannot eat on her own. For months, Chad and Amy had to insert a feeding tube down her nose into her stomach.
Now, Destiny has what is called a MIC-KEY button, or a G-tube. Food goes through her abdomen directly into her stomach. Feedings are very time-consuming. She has not been able to eat regular food yet.Chad has kept the community abreast of Destiny’s progress on social media. Thousands of people have “liked” many of his posts about Destiny because she usually has a smile on her face! He says he and his family feel the love from the community.
“I think there is a lot of love out there for babies, and a child that has Downs, a child that special needs.”
Chad says his updates have been very beneficial to his family because people in the Down Syndrome community have offered advice. Amy appreciates all the support.“These people who have reached out. We wouldn’t know about them if we hadn’t posted on Facebook,” she said.
The Petris say Destiny is incredibly good-natured and happy, despite her health problems. She only cries when she is experiencing discomfort. She loves her big brother, Brit, and sister, Emma. He wants people to change their outlook about special needs children, as he has.“We are so blessed to have her. She is challenging.
