Dear Member of the Scottish Parliament,

My name is Finlay. I recently became 18 and I was born with an extra chromosome.

You must be so excited about becoming an MSP. Well done to you all. Those of you who are new, might also feel a bit…


Dear Emmerdale,

I first wrote these words in March 2018 in celebration of World Down’s Syndrome Day (yes, we have a day when our global community comes together to celebrate all things Down’s syndrome).

I hope you make the time to read this.

Your comments about siblings are so misguided…
