Maddy Curtis and American Idol - Update

Because I don't watch American Idol, I've been curious as to what happened to Maddy Curtis on American Idol. Although she was cut during the first round after making it to Hollywood, her personal story got a lot of attention and was great exposure for families with Down syndrome! For more on her and her experience on the show, click HERE. If you didn't catch the clip of her trying out for the show or don't know who her family is, you can watch the short segment HERE.

  1. I was so excited about her publicity! It was so important for people to hear from a sibling that her life is blessed because of Down syndrome. I lurk on a termination board and so many women make that terrible choice because they don't want to "burden" the children they already have. Go, Maddy, for showing them the other side! :)
