When planning for her wedding, French invited all six of her students who have Down syndrome, to join in on the festivities and attend the ceremony as ring bearers and flower girls.


"They were like family to me. They were my first class and they've been my only class and so I knew I couldn't have a special day without them."

"It was so exciting, it was really special...just to have them be a part of the day and have them come with us and celebrate with us." French said.
