    One mom's letter to another mom about her son with Down Syndrome has gone viral. 

    When Jennifer Kiss-Engele found out her son Sawyer was the only kid in his class not invited to a classmate's birthday party, she said she knew it was because of her son's disability, according to Today.com.

    "I know it’s not because he’s mean, you couldn’t meet a happier child," Kiss-Engele' wrote in a Facebook post last week, which has since been shared thousands of times and posted on the Down Syndrome Research Foundation's website. "I know it’s not because he’s not fun, he has a great sense of humour and an infectious laugh. I know it’s not because your child and him don’t get along, he’s brought up your child’s name on several occasions." 

    In her letter, Kiss-Engele said she is not angry at the mother but urged her to become more informed about the condition. 

    Kiss-Engele's post was updated Sunday to say the parents spoke to their child about Sawyer and then created a special invitation just for him.
