Meet Seb White-Supermodel

"The turning point came when Seb was four months old and Caroline was pushing him in his pram in Bath one day when she passed a family with two perfect, blond-haired, blue-eyed boys — exactly the family she'd imagined for herself."

"Shuffling along behind that family was a middle-aged man with a ­pudding-basin haircut clinging to the arm of an elderly woman."

"Caroline says: 'He had Down's and was out with his mum. The ­contrast between these two families was ­horrific. I saw my future and couldn't bear it so I ran home, ­sobbing hysterically."

"As Caroline ranted and raved at Simon, he asked her a life-changing question: 'If you can't accept our baby, how can you expect the rest of the world to?" 

"It was a poignant question, and one that stopped Caroline in her tracks."
