For years people have come to me when they find a friend or a relative has a child with a diagnosis of Down Syndrome. They have come to me because they know my daughter Uma, (now 10 years old) has Down Syndrome. I am happy to say I am FINALLY doing a show on this topic.
My guest today Jen Jacob she is the co-founder and Vice President for the Down Syndrome Diagnosis Network (www.dsdiagnosisnetwork.org). As a part of her role, she creates, moderates and manages small, online groups for thousands of new and expectant parents and oversees day to day organizational operations.
Jen is also the co-author of "The Parent's Guide to Down Syndrome: Advice, Information, Inspiration, and Support for Raising Your Child from Diagnosis through Adulthood" and the author and a contributor for "Unexpected, Stories of a Down syndrome diagnosis" (www.missiont21.com). A former educator and professional development leader, she lives in the midwest with her husband and four children; her youngest son, Owen, has Down syndrome.
It is often said that a problem shared is a problem solved and both hosts have found that through chatting to each other over the years, has brought clarity and progress. Come and join them as they talk about whatever tickles their fancy and share a bit of down time listening to some modern-day philosophers as they discuss the nitty gritties of everyday life.

Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!
If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!

Adorable Scoundrels, Now they’re a book!
You’ll recognize your own toddlers (past or present) in the charming illustrations of Susan Robinson, who has two 3-year-olds of her own, and in the truth-telling verses of author, poet, and playwright Howard Eisenberg who met them first as toddlers of his own and of his much beloved late wife Arlene, who co-wrote the parenting bible, What to Expect When You’re Expecting.
Arlene, and the hundreds of toddlers he met with her, became Howard’s inspiration for a treasury of charming Adorable Scoundrel poems that make you smile when you feel like crying. After hearing them at Arlene’s lectures parents would ask, “Where can I get the book?” There was no book then, but there is now.
