Down Syndrome Family on American Idol!


Hat tip: Ricky.org

I have to be honest, sometimes I cringe at how the people who lack talent are seemingly exploited on the show, American Idol.

Yet, seeing the Curtis family in the video above last night, reminded me of why I love the show. When you see a genuine person of talent like Maddy Curtis, who has such a good heart, its wonderful to watch.

Tears came to my eyes as I saw how their family not only embraced one Down Syndrome child, but four. In a world where most women choose to abort their baby when they find out it has Downs, its a beautiful and touching thing to see.
