15 People With Down Syndrome Tell A Mom What Kind of Life Her Child Will Have

Last March, CoorDown created a video for World Down Syndrome Day that is beautiful, moving and inspiring.  The organization received an email from a future mother who found out her baby will be born with Down Syndrome, and asked what kind of life her baby will have.

Every year, around 6,000 American children are born with Down syndrome. One out of every 691 babies are born with the condition (in which a person has an extra chromosome), making it one of the most common genetic conditions in the U.S. Approximately 400,000 Americans have Down syndrome. Via

The heartwarming video answers the mother’s worried question in the smartest and most honest way possible.
