I’ve met some inspirational people over the years. As an autism parent, I’ve seen friends and family members with disabilities overcome great obstacles, and now, A&E Television has a show about men and women triumphing in life, despite the fact that they were born with Down Syndrome.
BORN THIS WAY chronicles the lives of a group of young adults born with Down syndrome as they pursue their passions while defying society’s expectations. The series also follows their parents who share their own journey of joy, sacrifice, and unconditional love.
Season 2 premieres tomorrow, Tuesday, July 26, and you can stream season 1 now.
The show is truly inspirational and will draw you in from the first clip. You’ll be introduced to men and women who are living lives you’d probably not have imagined possible.
Meet Rachel, for instance. She’s 32 years old and she holds a job and, despite living with her parents, she lives a very independent life and hopes to live on her own one day.
Watch the clips and then enter my Target Card giveaway by telling me, in the comments, who, in your life, inspires you. You can get a second entry by “liking” the post on Facebook, using the button below. I will choose a random winner one week after the Season 2 Premiere of BORN THIS WAY.
