After Adopting Two Girls With Down Syndrome, House Gets Vandalized With Hate Words

Everyone should be loved. No matter how you look like or if you have an illness or not.

Back in 2011 the Hollis family adopted 2 little girls, Meg and Alina, from the Ukraine. They were two cute little girls with Down Syndrome. They loved their new home and the family loved them.

Unfortunately it wasn’t all love from people around their neighborhood. “We live in a small town in Central Illinois and woke one morning in April 2011 to find our home and cars had been spray painted,” says mom Anne Hollis.

There was hate graffiti all over their property, some of the words were, “RETARDS,” or “Get Outta here.” The family was devastated, but they did not stay quiet.

Anne’s two boys, ages 6 and 7, wanted to make a video to stand up for their sister. They wanted to ask the public to stop using the word “retard.”

The boys video was seen by Everyone Matters, and they wanted to share their message with the world. They asked the boys if they could tweak the video a little bit, by adding emotional music and speeding up the video a bit. The boys agreed and the result were incredible.

Watch the touching video below.
