Girl With Down Syndrome Surprised With Doll That Looks Like Her

A girl with Down syndrome has gone viral thanks to her wholesome reaction when receiving a doll that looks just like her. In the beautiful footage - viewed more than seven million times across social media - Olive Mohlman, aged two, is given a box containing a doll specially designed by her mom. As she opens the gift at home in O'Fallon, Illinois, she pulls out the doll to much excitement and having examined her now toy, she puts it into a standing position with the help of her dad. She then looks at the face of the doll while letting out an “Oooooo,” giving it back pats and kisses after she had brought the toy in for a hug. It was this part of Olive’s second birthday surprise, filmed on March 5, that mom Kimberly, 39, decided to share on social media. Kimberly revealed when she was 11-weeks pregnant, doctors gave the family a 95 percent chance that Olive would have Down syndrome. And she said since Olive was born she’s brought nothing but joy to her family’s life, calling the toddler their “fighter baby.” Through her social media, which has more than 65,000 followers, Kimberly posts footage of Olive’s day to day life - where she loves to crawl, climb stairs, speak in sign language, and build up her vocabulary. It is through this channel that Kimberly hopes to share Olive’s joy with the world, and also encourage others who might have children with Down syndrome.
