A young mother has made a touching video about the love of her life: her son.
"I was miserable," the Tennessee mom wrote on a card, as she continued to describe the first few months of taking her son out in public.
"I couldn't go anywhere without someone doing something to point out Christian," Buchanan described. "Some people would even ask me, 'What's wrong with your son?'"
But as Christian grew older, he began laughing and playing, an experience that began to lift Buchanan's spirits.
"When people would stare, Christian would start giggling, and they would giggle too," she stated.
Soon, word of her son began to spread, and people began contacting Buchanan on Facebook, telling her how Christian's story had inspired them.
As the video comes to close, Buchanan turns her son to the camera. Not only is her son beautiful on the inside and out, she says, he's her "miracle."
