Absolute truth about how people with Down syndrome were treated back then.
6 August 2001 | by (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

Our 17 mo. old daughter has Down syndrome and this movie really put into perspective how people with Down syndrome were treated years gone by. Fortunately, Jewel was strong enough to know that her daughter would have a productive life...and by God, she did! God bless all those who went against the system and succeeded. Steps to a brighter future is our goal!!!
