Grab your hankies, because you’re about to be boo-hoo’in!

In celebration of World Down Syndrome Day on March 21, the following #DearFutureMom video has gone viral — and has all of us teary-eyed.

When a mom-to-be discovered that her unborn child has Down Syndrome, she wrote a letter to CoorDown, a Down Syndrome advocacy group, admitting her fears.

The European-based group responded with a truly touching video, where 15 people with Down syndrome outline all the things her child will be able to do.

Acknowledging that it will be difficult at times, the participants outline that her future child will make money, travel, and go to school like everyone else.

And, yes, her future child will be happy — and so will she.
