I’ve been watching a Web docu-series called The Specials, about the lives of five people living together. They are so inspirational, and full of character! Sam’s the cheeky guy, Lewis is pointedly funny, Lucy’s the responsible one, Hilly is the romantic drama queen, and Megan is the quiet overachiever. Lewis has Williams syndrome, while Lucy, Megan, Hilly and Sam has Down syndrome.
You can watch the whole 10 episodes on YouTube, and it’s subtitled, for those of us who can’t understand their English accent. Honestly, I hope Edry doesn’t end up being like Sam. I hope none of my boys do! ARGH!
A new documentary will be made as well, chronicling the lives of Hilly’s parents, Carol and Dafydd Williams, on how they set up the group home in the first place. This is a topic near and dear to my heart — how to care for Edry once he’s grown up, and in case I’m not around long enough to be with my kids. Who knows… this may be my calling.
