Connecticut Girl with Down Syndrome Appears in Video to Raise Awareness

GREENWICH, Conn. -- Growing up with Down syndrome can be a heartbreaking experience for families, whose lives are sometimes marked with frustration and limitations.
That's not the face 2-year-old Nina Cevallos and her Greenwich family choose to put on it.
The smiling face of Nina, who has Down syndrome, will be one of more than 200 photographs featured in a video that will play in New York's Times Square on Saturday morning. The video, which will play on the MTV plasma screen, is part of an effort to celebrate people of all ages from around the world with the syndrome living their lives and doing the things they love.
