The viral World Down Syndrome Day video: 50 moms and 50 kids sign why they wouldn't change a thing


In honor of World Down Syndrome Day, a group of moms in England created the video Wouldn't Change A Thing, and it's gone viral. The moms—all part of the Facebook group Designer Genes, for parents of children with DS born in 2013 and 2014—are seated in their cars with their four-year-olds, signing and lip-syncing to the song A Thousand Years. As mom Tania said, "It's really important for us to show something positive. No one is suffering here, life is pretty good, and there are big smiles all round."

This beautiful video may be about Down syndrome, but I'd say that many of us who have children with disabilities relate to wanting to sing the praises of our children—who are as perfect as any others.

    'It's really important for us to show something positive. No one is suffering here, life is pretty good, and there are big smiles all round.' As somebody who has a brother with Down syndrome, I just have one thing to say…. ‘Yes, yes, YES!!’ ;-D
    Happy, happy, happy World Down Syndrome Day, everybody!! ;)
    Peace out, Mary Lou
