This short documentary highlights a family created through adoption. Always knowing she would love to adopt, and having spent time with special needs children, little Sunflower’s mommy presented the idea to her husband: How would you feel about adopting a child with Down syndrome? It only took a couple of days for him to jump on board.

Now, this sweet couple is blessed every morning as they wake up to Sunflower’s delightful smile and laugh. Her strong, happy spirit fills their home and they are reminded every day how great life really is. Their joy is complete as the adoption is finalized amidst cheers throughout the court room.
