Gifts 2 -How People with Down Syndrome Enrich the World

Siblings, grandparents, cousins, aunts and uncles, mothers of older children, friends, teachers, medical professionals, and coaches tell their stories about having someone with Down syndrome in their life.

Acceptance, courage, friendship, awareness, and joy--these are the gifts recounted in more than seventy inspirational essays included in Gifts 2. Edited by Kathryn Lynard Soper, the follow-up to the bestselling Gifts presents a broader perspective on Down syndrome and life by including passionate stories by siblings, grandparents, cousins, aunts and uncles, as well as mothers of older children. Friends, teachers, medical professionals, and coaches also share the joys of knowing and caring for someone with Down syndrome.

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