The Maury show today

Ok, I confess, I'm addicted to the Maury show when they have paternity tests. I'm not sure why. Today a woman was on the show, and she revealed the secret to her fiance that their 2.5 year old son may not be his because she had cheated on him 1 time. Their son just happened to have Down Syndrome. This man had been a wonderful father ever since the baby was born and really wanted to be the father. When they brought out the results, the test showed that he WAS the father! That man was sooooooo happy, he jumped up and down and cried and it was very heart warming. Then they brought the little boy out and he saw the audience clapping and he started clapping and laughing and smiling, it was THE CUTEST thing I've seen in a LONG time. Seriously I got a little teary-eyed. I'm happy they had this on the show, because maybe when people see this, they'll think to themselves that babies with T21 ARE wanted and loved just like any other typical child.

I didn't see it, but I heard about it! So glad it showed others that people with Down syndrome are wanted not something to throw away.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I am so glad you decided to leave a comment. I am enjoying yours and my face lit up when I seen your sister's picture. Why is it that everytime I see someone with Down syndrome, I feel like I have run into my long lost family member? KWIM?
