Learning love from Baby Grace
As you may recall, I contributed to a book called Gifts: Mothers Reflect on How Children with Down Syndrome Enrich Their Lives. There was an article that was published after the recent Down syndrome convention in Boston. Essentially, a new parent of a child with Down syndrome said that she learned of her daughter's diagnosis prenatally. She was given a certain amount of time to process the information before she would decide how to proceed with her pregnancy (i.e. abort or give birth). During that time, she was given the Gifts book and it rocked her world in such a way that her little angel is now about six months old and thriving. How cool is that?! I'm so honored to be part of something so special.
