This Recently Adopted Baby With Down Syndrome Has The Most Heartwarming Smile Ever

This adorable video shows the baby's face light up with happiness.

Love makes this world a better place. No matter how difficult or hopeless a situation seems, or even if we are having a bad day, if we hear happy news or an act of kindness, it instantly makes our day better. Such is the story of this adorable eight-month-old baby. This baby suffers from Down Syndrome and the clip of this little girl, who is referred to as Baby H due to the adoption process, was filmed at her new home in Texas. This heartwarming clip shows the adorable baby smiling as her mother talks to her, reported WUSA 9.  



 

 

Just after her mother asks how her day is going, Baby H's face lights up and starts smiling as she lies on her belly on a play mat. Her mother is heard saying, "Oh I love your new smile. Oh, that is the cutest. Can you show me again?" The video was shared by the National Down Syndrome Adoption Network's Facebook page and it already has millions of views. According to a report by Daily Mail, baby H's adoptive mother said, "When Baby H was almost eight months old, she woke up one morning with this brand-new smile."



 

 

She continued, "We noticed it several times and realized she was showing us a cheesy grin - we laughed and laughed every time she did it and she just loved the attention. She got to where she could do it on cue and I just happened to be talking to her, in our home, one morning and she started cheesing for me. You can tell by my laughter how much we adore this smile and she actually only smiled like this for a couple of weeks so this video is a treasure for us."



 

 

Baby H's mother added, "We hope that all the viewers will see the beauty that lies in people with Down Syndrome. 'Although a Down Syndrome diagnosis can be scary, the reality is that your child has a purpose and will be able to live a full and happy life." Although Stephanie Thompson, the director of the National Down Syndrome Adoption Network, knew about Baby H during the adoption process, she didn't know how adorable she actually is. 



 

 

Stephanie said, "I was so happy to put a face with a name. I indirectly meet these children before they are born, I meet them on paper, so I fall in love with these kiddos early on. I walk the journey with the expected parent and the child, so when I have a chance to meet them, it brings it full circle. I can't explain the joy that it brings to me." National Down Syndrome Network is an adoption program founded in 1982 by Robin and David Steele. 



 

 

The organization's mission is to "ensure every child with Down Syndrome has the opportunity to grow up in a loving family." The program also provides information, resources, and support to people who are expecting to adopt or to those who already have adopted. The network also keeps an updated registry of potential adoptive families who are approved to adopt a baby with Down syndrome.
