The journey is hers. The choice. The love. The want. We tell most people this film was made in 48 hours with our phones, but the truth is it took 9 1/2 years to write this film. In that time I learned about the fears of being a mother and the weight of the responsibility that every mother feels in their own way. I learned what it meant to be the parent of a child with Down Syndrome through self and society and the differences of each of those paths. I learned to be an advocate and fight for both my children, that no outside boundaries be placed upon them based on prejudice of stereotype. Ultimately, I learned to let go of my fear and embrace all the goodness strength and blessings in every moment of what I call my life. I was given the platform and in that particular 48 hours I reached into my soul to share my journey that it may help another. Written by Lori Murphy Saux See less
