Kids with Down syndrome tell a mom-to-be what her child will experience

Fifteen people have an uplifting message for a mom-to-be just in time for World Down Syndrome Day.

The Italian Down syndrome advocacy group Coor Down received a touching letter last month from an expecting mother who found herself with the news that her child would have Down syndrome.

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

These children show the expecting mother that she doesn’t have anything to worry about—except for the difficulty all moms face in raising children. Her child will be able to be happy, speak, go to school, and do anything he or she wants.

And once the moms come out? Keep the tissues nearby.
