Man With Downs Surprises Girlfriend With Best Gift Ever — A Proposal!

When you see two people as in love as Justin Patton and Jaymee Miller, it’s hard not to smile.

The young couple from Pine Belt, Mississippi, have been together for eight bliss-filled years. Justin, who has Down syndrome, has never been more content.

“When I see Jaymee all day… I’m more happy,” he said. And it’s not hard to see why. Jaymee’s radiant grin can light up a room. It certainly did when Justin decided to take their relationship to the next level.

Jaymee had no idea what was coming when she and Justin met up with their loved ones during the Christmas season. So when Justin led her to the front of the room for an important “gift-giving ceremony,” her reaction was over-the-moon.

She couldn’t stop beaming as Justin poured out his heart. He told her he loved her, and that he had a very special Christmas present for her. That’s when he got down on one knee, held out a white box, and asked her to marry him. Without missing a beat, Jaymee said yes.

The proposal turned out beautifully, just like Justin had pictured. Jaymee adored the unique ring he picked out for her at Meraki Boutique in Hattiesburg. His mom, Kim, says he knew it was perfect for Jaymee the moment he saw it.
