Casting call...newborn with DS!

We have an assignment!

Please help me out and forward this email to anyone you know anywhere in the US and Canada that might have contact with a brand new Caucasian baby girl who has Down syndrome. Forward this to any list-serve you may be on for DS.

The book "The Memory Keeper's Daughter" is being made into a film for the Lifetime Channel. It is shooting in Nova Scotia in November. They are looking for a baby girl born in October 2007 to appear in the film as the new born Phoebe. They only found one baby with DS born in Nova Scotia in 2007 and she is 6 months old. In Canada it is a law to screen every expectant mother for DS not just a guideline, scary isn't it?

I need to hear from any parent of a newborn who might want the =
opportunity for their little one to work in Nova Scotia in November =
2007. I would also consider older babies weighing under 8 lbs. I know =
from my son Blair being a preemie he didn't hit 8 lbs until he was about =

appropriate pay and travel for the family. Please have anyone =
interested contact me at the DSALA office at 818-242-7871 or they can =
reach me by email at Thank you for helping me with this =
search, and watch for the film on Lifetime next spring. Gail
