31 for 21 Day 13 Famous folks

One day I was looking up more information on the Sears family- You know Dr. William Sears- the infamous parenting expert and pediatrician and parent along with his lovely wife Martha; of 8 children. Their 7th child Stephen has Down syndrome. Well I came across a Wikipedia page listing other famous families that have a child with Ds in them. Including Charles Darwin’s family and Charles Du Gaulle. I was looking for that page today and had no luck.

 

 

 I did come across these websites though:

http://www.downrightbeautiful.org/famous-parents.html

http://www.about-down-syndrome.com/famous-people-with-down-syndrome.html

http://childrenrspecial.wordpress.com/famous-people/famous-down-syndrome-people/

http://www.rapideyeproductions.com/factsheet.html

http://www.cdadc.com/ds/high-achieving-people-with-down-syndrome.html

And a  lovely article from Melissa Riggio:

But- sadly- as I said I cannot find the Wikipedia page. I know it was a category that was something along the lines of “famous parents of people with Down syndrome”. Perhaps it vanished?

Thoughts?
