Baby Kyle models the characteristics of Down syndrome

I have never had any post or video come close to being “viral” (and I would be lying if I said I wouldn’t want it). However, this one little video I made on a whim when Kyle was a year old now has over 9,000 views. It’s simple: I took close-up photographs of sweet baby Kyle, then put them together as a slide show of Down syndrome characteristics. It’s not only an introduction, but a way to show how beautiful all of the features of Down syndrome are.

My greatest hope is that this video will reach expectant parents who might be nervous about how their baby will look. Your baby will be beautiful, he will resemble your family, and you will see love in his upturned, almond-shaped eyes.
