Being a parent to a child with Down Syndrome, Camille, for 19 years, Entrepreneur Lolita dela Cruz has had many inappropriate statements thrown her way.
Of these, the one thing she really doesn’t appreciate hearing is that she should take extra care of her special needs child because she is a lucky charm.
For Lolita, there is really no need for other people to tell her that she has to take care of any her children or how to do it. She also finds it inappropriate when people call Camille her lucky charm in front of her other kids.
"They may feel that my special child is the only one who brings luck to our family," she says. Instead, she claims that all of her daughters are lucky charms, and treats them equally.
