October is a time to celebrate life with Down syndrome, and each week I’m sharing some of my favorite books and resources. This time, it’s a two-fer…I’d love to find a good home for Expecting Adam: A True Story of Birth, Rebirth, and Everyday Magic, Martha Beck’s personal account of the her pregnancy with her son Adam, whom she found out had Down syndrome via prenatal testing. And I’d also love to share The Memory Keeper’s Daughter, a novel by Kim Edwards. (Both books were part of a lively online book discussion that you can read about at Downsyn.com.)
If you’d like either, or both, of these books for yourself or someone you know, state your preference in the comments and I’ll choose a winner at the end of the week.
