I have been fortunate to share our story, to journal about my teenager daughter with down syndrome and her life as she goes through high school, graduation (with an academic diploma) and college searching. Alex’s goal is to live a future just like her siblings and just like her peers.She is truly living the ordinary life of an extraordinary girl.
I have also been fortunate to have been able to put part of our story in writing hoping to share our challenges, triumphs and magic. This book was a labor of love, and the feedback I have received has reinforced our message of hope and love.
This most recent review by Amber, really touched me because she shares her story too. We are all parents and families who have been graced with down syndrome. We are all trying to find our own way and be the best parents we can.
The book is broken into 11 “verbs”. First, Grief. Second, Research. And then: Incorporate, Promote, Include, Understand, Advocate, Expect the Best, Healthy Skepticism, Plan, and then Celebrate.
