Down syndrome & challenges of finding love

Posted: May 22, 2009 by mimi in Uncategorized

I just read a disgusting story of an adoptive mom who is desperately seeking sexual experiences for her down syndrome son. Read story here.  I find this notion so utterly offensive.  I’m a mom of a down syndrome teenager and for that mom to insist that for her son to be and feel normal is for him to experience sex “like any other 21 yr old”, even if it means resorting to prostitution.  Yeah, prostitution!  How any mom can be ok with prostitution for her son, I can’t fathom.  This story just infuriates me.

What do you think?
