The Lucky Few

Do you have a favorite account on social media? You know, the one that pops up on your Instagram and make your day?

Meet Heather Avis. She decided she to use social media to promote what she loves and to inspire others. It all started with her Instagram page @maceymakesmyday. Avis’s goal with this platform was simply to spread the awareness about Down syndrome.

Heather and her husband journeyed into parenthood via adoption. Both Josh and Heather were familiar with special needs children. Before the adoption, Heather worked as a Special Ed teacher.

When the adoption agency brought Macyn Hope, who has Down Syndrome to the Avis’s, they could not wait to have her, and who can blame them? Look at this cutie. 


After Macyn, became their sass machine, Truly, and finally their son, August, who also has Down Syndrome. These three kids transformed the Avis life. Heather’s little “wildflowers” have grown rapidly and are followed by over 110K people on Instagram


 The popularity of her social media inspired Heather to write The Lucky Few, which she describes as “her heart in words.” The book discusses how her journey is all a part of God’s great plan, no matter how hard the path.
