Down Syndrome in the News: 10 Reasons Why I LOVE This Commercial

10.  I love kids, so any commercial with sweet and adorable children is a shoe in for me.

9.  I’m encouraged to see children with Down syndrome (or any special need) being thrown into the mix when it comes to services being offered to parents.

8.   While I will probably never use a website that hooks up potential babysitters/nannies to parents looking for babysitters/nannies (with extensive references, of course), I love the concept.

7.  I love to see women starting up creative companies that address the needs of mothers and wives.

6.  Carter Murai is so stinkin cute!

And if you’re wondering who in the world Carter Murai is, watch the commercial.  He’s the one with the toothy grin, fabulous speech and the extra chromosome.

Thanks, http://www.lovethatmax.com/2013/05/kids-with-special-needs-in-ads.html for bringing this great commercial to light, and thanks www.pediastaff.com for landing it in my mailbox.

  1. I think its great the way the child with Downs is incorporated like all the others. Its not a commercial ABOUT being different, its just different children being kids!

  2. I just wanted to thank you for your lovely blog post about our son Carter… his grandma and grandpa passed it along to us, and it really made our day. He had such a great time filming the commercial and he and his little sister Love to watch it on YouTube (we don’t have cable, so we’ve actually never been able to see it air on television… but we certainly hear from all our friends and family via FaceBook whenever someone does see it) 🙂 Once again, thank you so much for your kind words and for creating such a meaningful and helpful blog… and for sharing your families journey in such an open and honest way.

    1. Sniff sniff. Thank you sooooo much for your comment! First Carter made my day, and now you!!!!! Give your son a great big hug from us, and thank you for sharing his adorable smile with the world!

      Blessings,
      Alyson
