They say becoming a father changes a man. This video illustrates that truth.

Meet Heath White, whose sense of self-worth was once wrapped up in his success – and whose life was shattered when his preborn baby was diagnosed with Down syndrome.

He found himself concerned. What would people think?

But fatherhood can change a man, and baby girls – including those with developmental delays – have a way of melting their daddy’s hearts. What once seemed like a curse became a blessing, and the dad who once rejected his daughter soon sought out ways to identify with her and show the world how proud he was of her.

It’s a touching affirmation of the value of life, and a story you won’t soon forget.
