In celebration of World Down Syndrome Day, a young girl shows love and acceptance for her adopted brother, Archie, who has Down Syndrome. The girl explains how Archie has had to miss out on a lot growing up because of his condition; however, she knows this shouldn’t be the case. Although the two get along the majority of the time, she also explains that they sometimes fight, especially when she feels he isn’t listening to what she is saying. However, this doesn’t mean she loves him any less or that she would change Archie in any way. Even if they are different, she believes that they still both deserve to be treated the same.
This video is a heartwarming story that we can all learn from. It demonstrates that a loving and opening mind, like the young girl in this video has towards her adopted brother, is one of the best instruments to making the world a better place.
