Well, if this isn’t the cutest darn movie you will ever watch I don’t know what is. Seriously adorable in every way. A sweet-n-sassy little girl talking about her brother with Down Syndrome. Archie was adopted from Bulgaria. She talks all about why she loves him.

Finish out the movie by watching more about his adoption and just why this little boy is so absolutely amazing. I especially love his super rad outfit.

Every kid deserves to jump on the bed at least once in their life with no ramifications at all. It is the little things in life that make this world worth it.

Across the world, there are thousands of sweet children with Down Syndrome who need the support, care, and LOVE that a family can provide.

If you’re interested in supporting this cause, or adopting a child with Down Syndrome, visit Reese’s Rainbow, an adoption grant foundation dedicated to helping children with Down Syndrome find their forever families.
