‘Grey’s’ Actress Caterina Scorsone Pens Moving Essay About Daughter Pippa’s Down Syndrome


Caterina Scorsone is best known for her role as Dr. Amelia Shepherd on the long-running ABC drama Grey’s Anatomy. But her most important role is as a mom. It’s something she feels deeply passionate about, and she has opened up about her motherhood experience before. However, now Caterina is sharing a bit more about daughter Paloma “Pippa” Michaela, who is 3 years old and has Down syndrome.

The 39-year-old actress just wrote a deeply personal and moving essay for Good Morning America, which she hopes will shed light on the condition. She also opened up about why special needs advocacy is so important to her in light of October, which is Down Syndrome Awareness Month.

In the stunning piece, she writes, “Pippa has Down syndrome. But Pippa isn’t Down syndrome. Pippa is Pippa.” She adds, “Pippa is different. So are you and so am I.” The moving piece isn’t just a show of a mother’s love; it’s an incredible statement about why our differences make us special.
