“I’m expecting a baby. I’ve discovered he has Down syndrome. I’m scared: what kind of life will my child have?” opens a heartwarming video addressed to a woman in real life expecting a baby with Down syndrome (DS).

The video answers the woman’s fears with a stirring message from 15 beautiful people with DS.

“Dear future mom, don’t be afraid, your child will be able to do many things.”


“He’ll be able to hug you,” one says.

“He’ll be able to speak and tell you he loves you,” another says.

The mother learns that her child with an extra copy of chromosome 21 will be able to learn to speak, write, go to school, fix a bicycle with his father, earn money at a job, rent an apartment, travel, and be just like anybody else.

The message of the video starkly contrasts the fact that about 90 percent of unborn children diagnosed with DS are destroyed by abortion.

“Dear future mom, your child can be happy,” one says.

It will be difficult and sometimes it might seem impossible, but isn’t it like that for all mothers, they tell the mother.

“And you can be happy too,” says another.

The video was spearheaded by the Italian National Coordination Associations of people with Down syndrome (CoorDown) and posted to YouTube four days ago. It already has more than half a million hits (538,032).

March 21 is World Down Syndrome Day.
