Video: A Down Syndrome Adoption Story

Have you seen this?

Denalee Chapman June 18, 2015

This is the story of one couple’s love overflowing for their newly adopted baby boy, Jaxon. While vacationing in Vegas, the couple got “the call.” They hopped on the next plane out and two days later met their perfect little baby.

Jaxon was born with Down syndrome, and he is the perfect child for these two. As they become a family of three, their love for each other is obvious. So grateful to have a child, these good people are grateful for adoption and grateful for a birth mother who knew who she wanted to parent Jaxon. Holly, Alex and Jaxon are a family because of adoption.
