American Idol audition

When Rio was first born and I was struggling with life's transitions- going from one to two children, moving to a sunless place where we didn't know a soul and no special ed services for Phoenix- I was really discouraged. It was then that I found author Barbara Curtis, mom to 12 kids, 4 with Down syndrome. I read her blog and wrote her some desperate emails that she answered promptly and wisely, even though she didn't even know me! Her wisest words to me were that God doesn't call the equipped but equips the called.

Here is her daughter's audition for American Idol and some great press for the DS community.
