Caterina Scorsone's Support for Daughter with Down Syndrome
In 2016, Scorsone's second child, daughter Paloma, or affectionately Pippa, was born with Down syndrome, a chromosomal condition associated with intellectual and developmental delay.
Talking to the Motherly podcast in 2019, the actress/mother opened up about her daughter's condition at birth, along with her initial thoughts regarding the situation at hand.
When Pippa was born, and I realized that she had Down syndrome and she was going to have some physical differences and some cognitive differences, I didn’t know what her capacity would be. It really did send me into a tailspin.
Caterina Scorsone Raises Her Voice for a Cause
After becoming the mother of a child with different abilities, the Station 19 actress, Scorsone, started advocating for other children with similar difficulties. After Paloma's birth, the TV actress took to social media and started raising awareness.
In October of 2018, she made major headlines for her Instagram post celebrating Down Syndrome Awareness Month. In the post, she explained how it is wrong to categorize Down syndrome as a "Risk" and rather called it a "Chance."
In her Instagram, Scorsone posted a cute picture of her daughter and wrote:
Language is important. Parents don’t have a 1 in 700 “RISK” of having a baby with Down syndrome. Parents have a 1 in 700 CHANCE of having a baby with Down syndrome, just like they have a 50 percent CHANCE of having a girl and a 50 percent CHANCE of having a boy. (With some beautiful variations in there as well)
For her gallantry work, Scorsone was awarded GLOBAL Quincy Jones Advocacy Award in 2020 by the Global Down Syndrome Foundation, a charity that works in favor of kids with Down syndrome.
And this August, her story was featured on the GLOBAL Down syndrome World Magazine. On the magazine's cover, the actress can be seen delighted while she holds her baby daughter Paloma.
