15 kids with Down syndrome tell a mum what to expect from her baby.

Coor Down, an Italy-based Down syndrome advocacy group, received the following letter from an expectant mother:

“I’m expecting a baby. I’ve discovered he has Down syndrome. I’m scared: what kind of life will my child have?”

In an awesome move, Coor Down decided to go straight to the source to get the future mum answers – they asked 15 people with Down syndrome to explain to her what she can expect from her beautiful new baby.

Just in time for World Down Syndrome Day on March 21, it’s impossible to watch this heartwarming video called “Dear Future Mom” without breaking into a smile (or getting something stuck in your eye).

Beautiful.
