Fantastic! Just letting you know that the new DVD on Down Syndrome is really good but quite long so it’s taking me a while to watch it. It is like reality TV (but in a good way) on the lives of 7 adults with DS living in LA. There are 3 guys and 4 girls and it deals with real issues about working, careers, dating getting married having babies (or not having them) It’s really well made and gives you the point of view of both the adults with DS and their parents and siblings.
