Strong Love

Bonnie posted this on my last entry, and in case you missed the comment:

 I wanted to let you know about “Strong Love” a new film I produced about a couple both born with Down syndrome who decide to marry. I thought readers of your blog might find it a useful resource. In “Strong Love” the parents are the experts and had faith in their children despite what the “experts” told them some 30 years ago!A recent review from the Down Syndrome News:
“Some scenes will make you cry, others will make you laugh. All in all, it’s a picture of life full of surprises, challenges and joy.”We have posted a short excerpt from the film of Holly and Jon practicing their wedding vows if you are interested in previewing it.
