When it comes to falling in love, sometimes you just know.
That was certainly the case for one family in Richland Township, Arkansas. When Ashlyn and Logan Williams brought home their seventh child, a daughter named Collyns, they weren’t sure how their 1-year-old would feel about her. Turns out they had nothing to worry about!
In a video, we get to witness the very special moment when Brooks sees Collyns at home for the first time.
The little boy has Down syndrome, so his parents were concerned that he wouldn’t understand the need to be gentle with her. But the moment Collyns is placed on her father’s chest beside Brooks, her big brother completely falls in love!
As he peers at the newborn, his little face lights up. In fact, he thinks she’s so great that he doesn’t want to let her out of his sight! When his mom takes Collyns into her arms, Brooks immediately bursts into tears.
“You want her back? OK, OK,” Ashlyn says off-camera. The second she sets Collyns back down, Brooks stops crying and proceeds to gaze at his sister with such raw emotion that we can’t hold back our own tears.
“I can just tell they are going to be best friends,” his mom said later. “It was really sweet, he already loves her so much. He is such a loving young boy, and we were just so tickled by his reaction.”
What a precious moment! We’re so glad these lucky parents caught it on camera so they can treasure it forever.
