In honor of World Down Syndrome Day, an Italian ad agency has created an ad that people all over the world are viewing and sharing.

A pregnant mother sent an email to Italy's national organization for people with Down Syndrome. The woman had learned that her unborn son had the genetic disorder, and she was fearful of what kind of life he would lead.

The ad agency featured 15 people with Down Syndrome telling her that her child will be able to run, go to school, tell her he loves her, and travel, hold a job and live on his own.

They say that his life will be challenging, but everyone faces difficulties and that he will be able to accomplish the things that he wants to.
