The internet is filled with heartening tales that never fail to make us smile. There are so many stories that even go viral. Recently, a tale that has caught the attention of many people online is of a man with down syndrome who finally got to fulfill his wish of driving with his nephew.
In a video shared by Instagram user @erinadvocates, he explains that his brother, who has down syndrome, has always wanted to drive a car but was not allowed to do. So, when he got a lawn mower, his goal became to give his nephew a ride on that. In the post’s caption, @erinadvocates wrote, “as sweet is the fact that when one of the first things he wanted to do with his nephew when we visited was drive him around on his mower. Shortly after we had arrived at his house, we didn’t know where Matt was and searched everywhere, only the find him sitting on the lawnmower, just waiting until he could give his nephew a ride. Idk if that’s stubborn or sweet, or BOTH. But it was a lovely moment that followed. “
