Son With Down Syndrome Spots Dad at Airport—What Happens Next Will Totally Melt Your Heart

down syndrome

Though people with Down Syndrome are often bullied or perceived as “less than” in society (as exemplified by Iceland’s 100 percent abortion rate on babies with the condition), they are actually filled with more love and joy than most of us combined. They find a way to appreciate the little things that so many of us take for granted.

Nothing could illustrate that better than this heartwarming homecoming that will make your eyes water with tears of joy.

After five days in New York City visiting his sister, this man with Down Syndrome rushed to his dad in the airport, giving him the biggest bear hug and plastering kisses all over his cheeks. The special moment captured on camera has now taken the Internet by storm, and it’s sure to be the best thing you’ll see ALL day!
