Storyline

Honesty, humor and heart are at the center of A&E's original docuseries, which highlights the outgoing personalities and amazing abilities of seven young adults born with Down syndrome. Hourlong episodes follow the Southern California residents as they pursue passions and dreams, explore friendships and romantic relationships, and generally defy society's expectations. The series also allows the parents to talk about the joy their children bring to their family, and the challenges they face in helping them live as independently as possible. The cast includes avid sportsman and self-professed ladies' man Sean; entertainer John; school employee Cristina; and budding entrepreneur Megan. Written by Jwelch5742

Finally...quality reality T.V.
16 January 2016 | by gretchen-45936See all my reviews

I have never before felt motivated to write a review for a television show. Well, this show inspired me! The cast is so authentic with their feelings and emotions. These people are putting themselves out there in an emotionally captivating way. They are sending the world strong and powerful messages about life, that we should all embrace. This show is about anything BUT disability and has brought "reality T.V." to a level of quality unseen in the past!In a world that places value on unimportant things, the cast in "Born this Way" brings the audience back to life's most beautiful treasures. This show has appeal for a wide range of ages. There are lessons to be learned by all!
