God is at work on us our entire lives to prepare us for the challenges and trials we will face. When I was single, I used to watch a Christian cable TV network which had EWTN programming, and discovered this great family oriented sitcom, "Life Goes On". I now know that this show helped to prepare me to be Christina's mother.
Far from mocking Dad and glorifying smart-mouthed teenagers, this series was about a loving family who just happened to have a son with Down Syndrome. This character was played by now famous Long Island native, Chris Burke, who has DS. I recommend it to all viewers who like seeing healthy families on TV.
