    Yes, I think I have seen it a couple of times. Does it have an episode where one of the girls wants to get married?

    And last night this young girl wanted to be the girlfriend of this other young person with Down's however, he told her that he wanted a girlfriend who didn't have Down's Syndrome. It was heartbreaking. She wants a boyfriend so much and then had such rejection.

    Well, pretty much all of them want to get married!

    Who you're talking about is Rachel, with the red hair. She was talking to Sean about him moving into his own home, alone.. she hinted around to them being a couple, how she could move in with him, etc. Then, just finally asked, "Do you want to be in a relationship"? He DID say, "No, he wants to be with someone who doesn't want DS". BUT.. He hits on and asks out women who have DS too! As a matter of fact, he was at a convention where he finds (finally!) a girl who doesn't have a bf. So, now he has a gf (who also has DS).
    I think he isn't attracted to Rachel.
    Which bugged me, cuz Sean blatantly hits on Megan right in front of Rachel.

    I'll try to do it soon. It's tough to have a favorite show by yourself. I like to discuss things about mine.

    Exactly!! Majority of the time, I'm smiling big time, at times, I cry..etc.

    I think it was my favorite guy, Steven, who said.."I don't like it to be called Down's Syndrome. I think it should be called Up Syndrome, cuz we're always upbeat"! Awww!!! I totally agree too.

    eta: Forgot to mention. I'm so tired of the same 'o same 'o reality shows being trucked out. This one isn't chock full of drama, fights, production set-ups, etc.
    It's just about their lives, and it's very enjoyable. To me anyway.

    Yes, I got the idea that it was not staged. I have a friend/colleague that I worked with some years ago. She and her husband were in their late twenties at the time that they had their first child. She was born with Down's. It was so shocking, since they were so young. It was a mild form of Down's. I'm not sure what the name of it is, but it still effected her. She got the best education and has done very well, even going to college. It was very emotional for my friend when they first found out though.

    Love this show. If Steven didn't have the physical indication of Down syndrome you wouldn't know he had it.
