Watch this recently adopted baby with Down syndrome who can't stop smiling

This little girl was recently adopted into a loving home and her smile is the cutest thing you'll see all day.

Just try to watch this precious little girl's grin without smiling yourself. 

In the video the little girl, who has Down syndrome, flashes her adorable smile over and over. 

"I love your new smile," a caregiver in the background of the video exclaims to her.

The infant, identified by the National Down Syndrome Adoption Network only as "Baby Girl H," was adopted earlier this year with help from the organization. The non-profit shared her video on Facebook on Oct. 7 with the caption "New smiles are the best smiles!" 

The NDSAN is part of the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati. The organization's mission is to "ensure that every child with Down syndrome has the opportunity to grow up in a loving family." 

The program provides information, resources and support to expectant, new and adoptive families. It also keeps a registry of potential adoptive families who are approved to welcome a baby with Down syndrome into their home.

The NDSAN was founded in 1982 by Robin and David Steele. The couple met Martha, a girl with Down syndrome living at a children's home, and fell in love with her. They wanted to adopt Martha, but the home told them she was "unadoptable." 

Robin and David worked to advocate for Martha's adoption and developed a program to help other families hoping to adopt children with Down Syndrome. Over the years, the couple has fostered hundreds of children, adopting 10 children with special needs, including four with Down syndrome.
