from Raquel Villanueva from 9News NBC KUSA:
On February 9, an expecting mother who had just learned her child would be born with Down syndrome reached out to an Italian nonprofit."I'm scared: What kind of life will my child have?" the worried mother asked the Coordown organization in an email.
To help answer her question, Coordown teamed up with Saatchi & Saatchiad agency. Together, they interviewed 15 people with Down syndrome from different countries across Europe.
They released the responses on YouTube, in honor of World Down Syndrome Day, which is March 21.
The sweet answers reassure the expecting mother that her future son will "be able to hug" her and that they will one day grow up and have a job and other responsibilities.
"Sometimes it will be difficult," they caution. "Very difficult. Almost impossible."
But then ask "isn't it like that for all mothers?"
