More Alike Than Different

My children get asked the same questions all the time; What do you want to be when you grow up? Would you rather have a cat or a dog? What's your favorite food? What do you want for dinner? Who do you like better, mom or dad? Just kidding.. kind of. The difference between them? One has an extra chromosome. 

Lauren Costabile, along with her brother Paul, produced a video called "More Alike Than Different" in celebration of World Down Syndrome day 2015. They asked both typically developing children and kids rocking an extra chromosome the same questions and recorded their answers for everyone to see. 

This video not only shows the world that these children really are "More Alike Than Different" from their typical peers, but that everyone deserves to be accepted and loved for who they are.
