Made me cry. What a lovely story.

It was an interesting DVD - encouraging to see how 2 young adults with Down syndrome can so enjoy their lives together. Lovely to see the commitment and joy for each other. I was dissapointed by their choice or the choice made by their parents re pre-marital relations. All folk have different ethics and morals. We feel realistically these folk can also be taught morals and values as they can also learn other skills to help run their lives. But it was a very heartwarming DVD.

Katrina (who is 16 and has Down Syndrome) found this DVD fascinating because she is intending to get married one day & found it useful to see some role models.

This is a great DVD and I'd recommend it for any parents of a disabled child
