There’s something so innocently beautiful about children with Down Syndrome. This genetic syndrome affects thousands of children each year, and it’s very likely that you know someone who is affected by the disability. Still, that doesn’t stop people from discriminating against those with Down Syndrome.
Photographer Julie Willson experienced this discrimination herself when her younger sister was diagnosed, and she now works every day to take pictures of children with Down Syndrome so that the world can see their light, joy, beauty, and happiness. Check out these photographs she took. Who knows, you just might be the reason someone else smiles today.
Without further ado, check out these photographs taken by Julie Willson!
