It's not easy to be different — to some degree, everyone can understand that statement. As parents, it can be even harder to see our children walk that path, but when life gives them someone who understands them, is there really anything better?

One new mom on TikTok is sharing a sweet moment between her baby girl and a person who will likely be a big part of her life, especially as she gets bigger. This mom's daughter was born with Down Syndrome, and Mom already had experience living life alongside someone with the same diagnosis: Her brother, who is now an uncle.


Mom shared a video of the first time her little brother and her daughter got to meet, and it is so sweet to watch. The look on his face when she's placed in her arms is likely something his sister is never going to forget. It's like there's an instant bond there! 

"Such a pure moment. He was so excited to meet his new niece," she wrote in her caption.

Considering how special this video is, it's no surprise that it's already racked up over 2.5 million views, and well over 4,000 people have commented to share how it impacted them.

"The pure joy on his face. You know your girl is going to experience a love like no other having him as an uncle," one commenter wrote.

This uncle and niece are so lucky to have each other.
