  1. […] I was watching a video on Andrew’s Angels Facebook page. They posted a story about the whites. The father (Heath White) succeeded in every aspect of his life previously. And now he was told that the baby he and his wife were expecting was going to be born with down syndromes. Their little baby girl was born in 2007 and wasn’t prepared to raise a daughter with a disability. It took him awhile to accept this little baby. She wasn’t part of the plan? She wasn’t perfect? He was a runner and competed in marathons all over the world. He wanted his wife to have an abortion and now he runs races with Paisley. I will include the video of his story with Paisley. Check Out the Video! […]

  5. […] And also on that note, my friend Bekah showed me a really touching video about a father and his daughter with down syndrome. He and his wife knew before Paisley was born, that she was not going to be “normal,” and he even tried to convince his wife to abort. She couldn’t do it though and was afraid that he would leave because he had this belief that his genes were superior and he was meant to do something great in his life. He didn’t want a special needs child slowing him down or reflecting poorly on his genetics…that is until he saw his little girl laugh for the first time and realized how wrong he was. This video is him talking about how his biggest fear became his greatest joy, and the amount of love and respect he has for his daughter is truly beautiful.
