This is one of the most heartwarming and amazing stories you find on the internet. This couple both have Down syndrome but, for these two, it doesn’t present a problem: their life is simply limitless.
Down syndrome is a genetic condition caused by the presence of an extra chromosome 21 and it’s estimated that about 1 in 1,000 live births worldwide is affected by Down syndrome. In the U.S. alone, it is estimated that about 6,000 babies are born with Down syndrome each year. Down syndrome affects individuals in different ways, but it is commonly associated with certain physical and intellectual characteristics like intellectual disability and developmental delays.
But Chris and Sofia have always defied the odds in life and have always been proving their potential. This couple really isn’t any different from those who don’t have Down syndrome–except that maybe they are a little more driven than most. Chris owns and operates his own food truck and sells his own brand of coffee beans called CHRISin Limites. Sofia is a model and has a great career as well, working for a number of well-known brands.
Chris’s dad says,” “He’s persistent. A couple of times, he will fail. But he knows he has to try and try again. That’s what we’ve learned from him. That’s a big lesson in life.” They are so inspirational. Watch the full video below and please leave us a Facebook comment to let us know what you thought!
