50 Mums | 50 Kids | 1 Extra Chromosome

The mums in this video and the dad who created it ( https://twitter.com/5ushi ) met online and got together to show the world just how ordinary and fun life with the condition is and how they "Wouldn't Change a Thing". It features a carpool karaoke lip sync in support of World Down Syndrome Day 2018 and features 50 mums and their children singing along to Christina Perri's multi-platinum selling track, "A Thousand Years". The video was originally inspired by Singing Hands - a UK organisation who's videos have helped many in the group learn Makaton for supporting their children’s communication development. Makaton is designed to help hearing people with learning or communication difficulties using signs, symbols alongside speech. With thanks to the artist Christina Perri for her support and Singing Hands for the original concept.

Jihan Davincka : “Motherhood is about raising and celebrating the child you have, not the child you thought you would have. It’s about understanding that he is exactly the person he is supposed to be and that, if you’re lucky, he just might be the teacher who turns you into the person you are supposed to be.” ~ Joan Ryan We would not gonna change them for the world but we would change the world for them 💞💞💞 .
