In the Afrikaans language people with Down's syndrome are referred to as “hemelkinders”, literally translated into “heaven’s children”. I think this short clip perfectly explains why. So much otherworldly love we can but hope to one day experience ourselves!
And this comment made me cry
Well thanks for making a grown man cry 😭
Right there with ya bro (passes kleenex)
Adorable... love how they check each other out making sure they are both ok
I have to ask what does your name mean
It makes me sad that the dad will probably go before the kid. Just imagine how hard a month would be for him.
This thought breaks me. Imagine having all that love and no one who can receive it.
Wholesome indeed! Pure love.
He ‘points his finger lovingly’ just like my uncle does. It’s weird how similar behaviours can be in different downs people.
If I ever want a pick me up, I just go see my uncle Ian, because he always says: “[cronnyberg], you’re handsome just like me” 😂
I love this so freakin' much.
Imma gonna do wat ever it takes for my son to love me that much.
Just be yourself and stay with him.
Oh my gosh this is the absolutely one of the most sweetest videos I've seen in a long time!
Their love and joy for one another was palpable.
Not asking to be a jerk, just a serious question: isn't the sons age sort of miraculous? I thought one of the great tragedies of downs was it pretty significantly shortened lives. If so, dad should get double points for taking such excellent care of his boy.
They didn't live as long back in the day, because we never gave them the care they needed back then.
Subs named mademesmile, not mademecry gaddemit!
Nothing makes me cry, how dare you open this floodgates
This is pure, and raw and heart-touching, it's unbearable.
I love this but it makes me sad thinking about when his dad is no longer around. Gah! My eyes!
This made me cry (happy) tears
The familiarity of when he boops his father’s nose and his finger lingers there like he’s making sure he’s real and okay makes me feel so happy for them both. I wanna hug my kids even more every time I see this video.
God bless that man. I say that part a lot. If I lived for 500 years I doubt Grace would ever visit me like it does this man every day.
I’m not crying there’s just something in my eye ;-;
I work with people who have disabilities and what I’ve noticed is that people with DS tap into this kind of love that we can’t. It’s truly amazing.
I love this father. So full of love.
Fuck! I miss my dad.
I have never been embraced lovingly by a parent or foster parent and this video makes my heart hurt with longing. Isn't it funny how even at 37 we long for the type of parents we deserved as children.
* gives you a big old hug *
I have a Down syndrome son, he´s 23 yo and I can confirm he´s the most loving person I had the fortune to meet, not only that, he has shown me a level of kindness that I didn't think was possible before, no matter if I ever had to scold him, he has never ever hold a grudge and is always ready to hug you no matter what, when a get home every day he´s the first to say hi, he goes out of his way to bring me anything I want, always trying his best to help and always giving everything he has for his family or friends, even for complete strangers, he doesn't know evil, he just knows love and compassion, he lives his life carefree and with a smile on his face and we are blessed to have him making our lives better. We truly are blessed.
I hear you buddy. My boy is 6, has DS and is the best human being I've ever met. He doesn't have any selfishness in him at all. Only fun, love and curiosity. He is a purer, and better, person than 95% of the general population.
So sweet 🥰
This is just so pure
Goddamn those onions.
This made me smile indeed.
I love this subreddit so much, thankyou for making me smile
Total acceptance, total love. Gives me hope for the rest of humanity to know that this even exists....
What the heck man? You woke up today and chose tearjerker first thing in the am. Now I’m probably going to be nice today.... until no less than 5 idiots reinforce my lack of faith in humanity.
People with down syndrome are always full of love =DDD
People with Down's Syndrome make this world a better place.
🥺 Oh wow, I did not expect to get tears in my eyes... that's one of the sweetest videos I've seen lately, and what a great daddy. This is the difference between "a father" and "daddy" to me.
Happy cake day!
Happy cake day
True emotions and I wish they never have to spend time apart again.
That's absolutely precious
That is the sweetest most endearing thing I have seen in forever! Just pure love. I adore how the son like inspects him over like a new mother counting fingers and toes. Makes my heart💖 smile 😄 we - I needed this
There are some things that just need reposting on a regular basis!
This, yes, this is definitely one of them!!
Never fails to bring a smile to my face
Happy cake day! 🎂
I love this clip so much. I will never get tired of it.
Some bastard been cutting onions round me here!
We should all be so lucky !! Thanks for posting, needed to be reminded that good people and humanity still exist, been losing all faith in it
Probably the most wholesome thing on Reddit
The way he held his face in his hands at the end got me.
Damn, I love this. People with DS are so pure.
So wholesome :) Does anybody know what the son answers to ‚did you have a good time?‘ I can‘t quite make it out..
I love every single thing about this! This is the meaning of true love between and parent and child💝
Take a award my friend.
Best thing I've seen in a long time.
That’s me and my dog after I pop out to the shops for five minutes
*son with Down’s syndrome
I welcome this repost every single time.
You need a shave.
Such love & affection, I totally agree with them being called heavens children. Perfectly pure.
A little too much tongue on the kiss

Most down syndrome people I've met in my life where angels. Seriously.
Shut up I'm not crying, you are crying.
Damn. So touching.
There will never be a day that I won’t be happy to see this pop up somewhere. It makes me happy every. single. time.
I love this so much. Instant tears
Man i hope i can share a moment like this with my dad when we’re getting old and grey
I really hope my kids love me this much when they grow up.
If you want more of this ...go and watch
The peanut butter falcon
Crying.... still crying...... still same...
Aw thats awesome
You weren't supposed to make me cry!
My heart...it’s bleeding wholesomeness- omg- 🥺💕
The love shown between these 2 ❤️
Thank you for the morning dose of eye bleach.
I hope I can kiss my dad when I’m 53. This is awesome
Thank you for posting this.
That's it. I'm reporting this video for making me feel too much emotions!
I think the last 3 times my wife has come downstairs while I've been on reddit I've been welling up. I probably look insane
My cold black heart is fluttering 🖤✨
This is the kind of relationship I wish I had with my dad
The man learning on escalator at 0:45
Is he crying?
Pure love! It's beautiful... Warmed my fuckin soul
Damn ninjas cutting onions
I would literally trade the rest of my life for that dad to be able to live until the day his son dies so they never have to be apart again.
OMFG! My old, hard, cynical heart just felt that
damn neighbours cutting onions again
I've already see it on this sub but damn, im gonna upvote anyway sorry guys
It’s enough to make a grown man cry.
True love ❤️
As the father of an almost 2 year old, can confirm. Nothing else matters.
I’m not crying, you’re crying. Ok yeah I’m crying.
“You need a shave” so pure
Hahhaa i like when he rubs his hair
Bless them both! ❤️
I want to like this post more than once
This, this right here is what beauty looks like.
A fathers bond with his son is forever.
It really shouldn’t matter that the son has a disability. I love the reaction I get after not seeing my sons for a day or two and hope it never goes away. I wish I could still do that with my dad. Show your loved ones how much you love them on a daily basis because you never know when they won’t be around anymore. I love you pop pop, RIP.
People with autism and down syndrome are too good for this world.
Gotta show this to my wife.
Take every picture of a kitten in a shoe, multiply it by a kid saying “pasghetti”, put it to the “You got it dude” power and you’ve got a moment half as adorable as this.
I often hear people feel sorry for families with disabled children. They obviously have no idea how much joy these children bring.
so honestly curious is it normal for someone with down syndrome to live this long?
This love is so pure
Thats a make out session
