monica and david

so excited to see this documentary.  there are a few screenings of it this summer one of them at the National Down Syndrome Congress Convention in florida.   so if you are going there check it out and let me know what you think.  i hear it will also be shown on hbo in october.  i can't wait!

check out the trailer at,
they are also on facebook and twitter.  spread the word.  =)

MONICA & DAVID explores the marriage of two adults with Down syndrome and the family who strives to support their needs.  Monica and David are blissfully in love and want what other adults have—an independent life.  Full of humor, romance and everyday family drama, the film uses intimate fly-on-the wall footage to reveal the complexity of their story.  While Monica and David are capable beyond expectations, their parents, aware of mainstream rejection of adults with intellectual disabilities, have trouble letting go.

It's playing near here next week, but I'm not going to be able to go because of Steve's work schedule. :-( I'm anxious to see it!
