Unforgettable Video of Girl With Down Syndrome's Miracle Game (VIDEO)

Inspiring 5

Abigail Kidd

I've done a LOT of stories for Moms Matter, but this one has got to be my all-time favorite.

Twelve-year-old Abigail Kidd was born with Down Syndrome, and a host of other major medical problems. The doctors said she wouldn't live past the age of 1. Not only did she prove them wrong, she recently earned a spot on her school's basketball team -- and at the first game, well, you won't believe your eyes.

Click through to see the unforgettable video.

Well if that didn't make your day, nothing will.

We see so many negative stories about tweens and teens today. Isn't it refreshing to see a group of girls who went above and beyond to do the right thing?

We especially loved the girl on the opposing team who stopped to give Abigail a hug after she made the shot. That's exactly how I hope my own daughter will be some day.

More and more, these moments are being caught on camera and uploaded to YouTube. I hope they inspire more tweens and teens to help others who need a hand in life.

What do you think of Abigail Kidd and her team?
