March 21, World Down Syndrome Day

March 21 is World Down Syndrome Day, chosen for the the trisomy of the 21st chromosome.

I’m expecting a baby. I discovered that he has Down Syndrome. I’m scared: what kind of life will my child have? This is the beginning of this video, which tries to create awareness around Down Syndrome. The ad features fifteen people with Down Syndrome who assure the future mom that her future son, identified as having Down Syndrome, will have a normal life with the ability to do almost anything he wants to do. Just like them. 

Dear Future Mom, don’t be afraid. Your child will be able to do many things. He’ll be able to hug you. He will be able to run towards you. He’ll be able to speak and tell you he loves you…Sometimes it will be difficult, very difficult. Almost impossible. But isn’t it like that for all mothers?
