Today is World Down Syndrome Day which is dedicated to raising awareness of the genetic condition and aims to celebrate uniqueness. This video is aimed at a future mother who is expecting a baby with Down Syndrome, and seeks to reassure mothers in similar situations. The video is beautiful, respectful but most of all, inspiring.

This heart-warming video sees 15 people with Down Syndrome reassuring a future mother who is expecting a child with the condition. The video was made by the organisation Coor Down after they received an email from the mother which read: “I’m expecting a baby. I’ve discovered he has Down syndrome. I’m scared: what kind of life will my child have?”

The video is beautifully done and full of hope, love and a message that will have you reaching for the tissues.
