Watching these siblings discuss their mutual love will fill you with joy

Brothers Biffin and Turner

Take a few minutes to watch these brothers chat wth each other about their appreciation for each other and what the future holds.

What is possibly one of the most beautiful videos to be shared on social media was recently posted by Fr. João Silveira.

In the two-minute clip, big brother Biffin and his little brother Turner, with Down syndrome, are discussing their relationship.

You can see their loving bond straight away; not just in the way they cuddle up to each other, but the looks they give each other throughout the video.

Between the cuddles and the little giggles the boys chat about what is the “best thing about being brothers.” (Not to spoil the video, but the answer is perfect!)

And while little Turner teases about how he always wins at everything — with Biffin graciously allowing him to think this is true — what really stands out is the genuine love and happiness exuding from the boys.

Perhaps one of the most inspiring part of the video is when Turner shares what he hopes to be in the future. His simple response of “kind and loving” only reinforces how wonderful these young siblings are, and what hope there is for the future.
