    I wish I listened to this before going to conference. Amy is awesome! I did dance with her for a bit, not knowing she was a special guest.
    I love this podcast in particular. Thank you for talking about the craziness we are experiencing even in our Down syndrome communities – the lack of respect for one another is huge! Having GenerationG be my adopted platform to use when people start speaking badly of others has been so helpful. A person preaching accept my child, and then speaking hatefully about a person has to reconsider their words when GenerationG is softly mentioned. Way to be world changers!!! Thank you Nancy, GiGi, Franco and the GiGi Network❤️
