To adopt a disabled baby you are literally committing every day to them for the rest of your life. This is one of the most selfless things I could even imagine. Edit: I really hope no disabled people read my comment and thought I meant they’re a burden on their loved ones. I’ve been friends with and known amazing differently abled people for much of my life, and the light that you bring to people’s lives cannot be replaced. Like anybody else, once you’re a friend or family you don’t have to justify your existence. Being yourself and a good person is all anybody wants from you in this life.


If we’re going to immortalize ANYONE with statues, I nominate this guy and his beautiful daughter.


I once watched a documentary type program about adopting disabled children. There is a family who had a few kids of their own , when their kids grew up to teens , the parents decided to adopt . These people have hearts of gold . They adopt the kids other people refuse . Now , okay – the people are wealthy so are able to hire help and are able to give the children the medical care they need . Amazing people


he doesn’t want down syndrome to define his daughter but you wouldn’t know that from his instagram because every post has the hashtag #downsyndrome
