If you know someone who loves a person with Down Syndrome, or anyone struggling to come to terms with a diagnosis of Down Syndrome, you might want to give them a copy of Gifts: Mothers Reflect on How Children with Down Syndrome Enrich Their Lives. It's a book of honest essays by mothers who are full of gratitude for their children with Down Syndrome, despite the challenges involved. The foreword is by Martha Sears, whose seventh child with Dr. William Sears has Down Syndrome. I would have liked to read a book like this when our prenatal testing indicated a higher risk of Down Syndrome (I blogged about this here). This book includes an essay by Emily Zeid, who commented on my post after I recommended her blog about her beautiful Emma Jayne.
