Mom wants to give son with Down syndrome to foster care, so dad decides to raise baby all on his own

Every day, babies are born around the world with various conditions that make them unique. However, not all parents fully accept and embrace these differences. Some parents, regrettably, even contemplate giving up or disowning their children if they don’t fit their narrow definition of perfection.

In the case of children with Down syndrome, despite the advancements in understanding and acceptance in modern society, prejudice and uncertainty still persist. One Russian father, Evgeny Anisimov, is determined to shatter the stigma surrounding Down syndrome while independently raising his son, Misha, who has the condition.

At the age of 33, Evgeny is on a mission to show the world that children with Down syndrome are equally deserving of love and acceptance. He has taken on the role of a single parent after his wife decided to leave because she couldn’t cope with their son’s diagnosis.
