ROLE MODEL__Andrea F Friedman

Today we saw an episode of Law and Order SVU and in it was a 65 year old mother and her adult daughter with Down syndrome. The young woman who played her daughter was an amazing actress, and yes, she had Down syndrome (I hate it when they have typical people play folks with Down syndrome)

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0295141/ is her IMDB page, read her resume, she is a great role model for all of our children.

I find it funny that she played a young woman named Amanda on "Life Goes ON" now I have never seen the show, and no, Amanda is not named after her. Amanda is named after my paternal Grandmother.

I remember her from Life Goes on!! It is so funny cause I used to think that Chris Burke was just "acting" like he had down syndrome. Mercede was born and then I realized he did have it!! lol

I remember reading back then that Andrea got her drivers license on her first try but her sister failed :)

Beautiful artwork featuring children
