This is so lovely.
March 21 is World Down Syndrome Day. To mark it, Coor Down (Italy’s Coordinamento Nazionale Associazioni delle persone con sindrome di Down) has released this video.
The video is in response to an email the association received from a scared mother to be.
“I’m expecting a baby,” she wrote. “I’ve discovered he has Down syndrome. I’m scared: What kind of life will my child have?”
Fifteen people with Down Syndrome assure her that her child can be happy.
