Today is World Down syndrome day:

World Down Syndrome Day is celebrated on the 21st day of the third month of each year to symbolize a third copy of the 21st chromosome in Down syndrome. This year is especially exciting as it is the first year that the date is officially recognized by the United Nations!

In honor of this day, parents of children with Down syndrome were asked the following question:

If they could go back right before they had, or adopted, their child(ren) with Down syndrome, 
what would they tell themselves?

Watch the following video for their answers, it's beautiful!

(My youngest daughter has Down syndrome, 
so that is why this clip is very touching to me.)
