World Down Syndrome Day is March 21, and in honor of this, the siblings of children and adults with Down syndrome put together a video called “50 Siblings, We Are Family” featuring the song “We Are Family” by Sister Sledge. Parents who learn their preborn child has Down syndrome often wonder how that diagnosis will affect their other children. Sometimes their concerns lead them to abort their baby, but this video proves they shouldn’t fear.
The video was put together by the organization Wouldn’t Change A Thing Foundation and features siblings singing “We Are Family” together in their cars. Many of them use sign language to sing the lyrics, and each of them is living proof of what researchers already know: siblings of people with Down syndrome wouldn’t trade or change their siblings for anything.
