Dear Future Mom: World Down Syndrome Day

March 21st is World Down Syndrome Day. With over 2 million views and climbing, hear a heartwarming message from 15 people with Down Syndrome to a future mom of a child with the same genetic condition.

Dear Future Mom,

Don't be afraid. Your child will be able to do many things. He'll be able to hug you. He'll be able to run towards you. He'll be able to speak and tell you he loves you. He will be able to go to school, like everybody. He'll be able to learn to write and he'll be able to write to you if someday he is far away. Because indeed he will be able to travel too. He'll be able to help his father fix his bicycle. He'll be able to work and earn his money. And with that money he'll be able to invite you our for dinner. Or rent an apartment and go on living alone. Sometimes it will be difficult.

Very difficult.

Almost impossible.

But isn't it like that for all mothers?

Dear furniture mom, your child can be happy, just like I am. And you'll be happy too, right mom?
