Gifts - Mothers Reflect on How Children with Down Syndrome Enrich Their Lives

This is a collection of sixty-three personal stories written by mothers describing the gifts of respect, strength, delight, perspective, and love, which their child with Down syndrome has brought into their lives.

Having a baby with Down syndrome is not something most parents would willingly choose. Yet many who travel this path discover rich, unexpected rewards along the way. In this candid and poignant collection of personal stories, sixty-three mothers describe the gifts of respect, strength, delight, perspective and love, which their child with Down syndrome has brought into their lives.

NB: The library resources are available for ADSA library members to borrow. Unfortunately we do not sell direct to the general public.
