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

This reality series features six young adults with Down syndrome and their families. If this series helps show their dreams and realities. They don't let Down syndrome define their lives. If you know somebody having a Down syndrome child and are considering terminating the pregnancy, please watch this show. This program shows that having a Down syndrome child isn't the end of the world. This series shows they can have normal lives including going to college, having jobs, getting married and more. Congratulations on a well deserved Emmy. The six adults meet at a center in Los Angeles, California. If this series can be educate others about Down syndrome then maybe there wouldn't be a termination rate of about 75%.
