A sweet baby girl with Down Syndrome wanted to give her new adoptive mother a huge smile, and luckily it was caught on camera. The video gained thousands of reactions after it was posted to the National Down Syndrome Adoption Network Facebook page. 8-month-old “Baby H” (as she is known to protect her privacy during the adoption process) now lives in Texas with her family.
Baby H was hanging out on her blanket with her mom when she asked her how her day was going—and all of a sudden her adorable face erupts into the famous grin!
“When Baby H was almost eight months old, she woke up one morning with this brand-new smile,” her mom said to The Daily Mail. “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.”
Her mom also noted in the interview that she noticed that her Baby H could do the smile on cue. In the next part of the video, her mom says, “Ohh I love your new smile! That is the cutest! Can you show me again?”
Of course, Baby H loves to hear her mama’s voice and she just has to give her a big smile again. You can then hear her mom say, “Oh my goodness I like that new smile!”
Her mom remarked in the interview with The Daily Mail, that her laughter was the reaction to how much she loves her baby’s smile:
“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.”
“We hope that all the viewers will see the beauty that lies in people with Down Syndrome,” she continued. “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.”
