Baby H’s adoptive mother said: ‘When Baby H was almost eight months old, she woke up one morning with this brand-new smile. 

‘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. 

‘She got to where she could do it on cue and I just happened to be talking to her, in our home, one morning and she started cheesing for me.

‘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 said: ‘I was so happy to put a face with a name. 

‘I indirectly meet these children before they are born, I meet them on paper, so I fall in love with these kiddos early on.

‘I walk the journey with the expected parent and the child, so when I have a chance to meet them, it brings it full circle. I can’t explain the joy that it brings to me.’

National Down Syndrome Adoption Network is an adoption program that also educates individuals about becoming parents of a child with Down Syndrome.
