Watch the Moment This Girl With Down Syndrome Meets Her New Family


For the Shook family, Monday, July 21, is a date they won’t soon forget. It’s the day they met Lucy.

Lucy is a 6-year-old girl with Down syndrome who’s been living in an orphanage in China, KHOU-TV reported. The Shook family, from Woodlands, Texas, fell in love with Lucy when they saw her on video. Now, they’re in the process of officially adopting her. On Monday, they were able to finally meet her in person and shared an emotional moment at the airport.

We don’t see it as we are going to help her,” Brent Shook, Lucy’s soon-to-be father, told KHOU-TV. “We see it as she’s going to bless our lives.”

Watch Lucy meet her new family in the video below:
