I will miss this show. These kids were so very inspirational to everyone. I personally do not have children, but if I had, I’d want to know these kids to know that I’d be honored to have had any of them as mine or been honored if I had had a child born with Downs Syndrome. I just really loved each and everyone on these special humans!
