Kudos for Gifts

These wonderful quotes will be included on the back cover of the new edition of Gifts.

“This fine book helps dispel the fear and misinformation about Down syndrome that many parents and prospective parents face. As these deft essays convey, the world would be a sweeter place with more Down syndrome citizens, not fewer.”

--George F. Will

Gifts is honest and life affirming, a chorus of mothers proclaiming what every obstetrician and gynecologist must learn - that life is a gift and an extra chromosome is not the end of the world.”

--Beverly Beckham, columnist, The Boston Globe

“Through Gifts we hear the powerful voices of mothers who said "yes" when others might have been saying "no." These mothers take us on their journey filled with wonder, courage, and the belief that children with Down syndrome can and will succeed.”

--Brian G. Skotko, M.D., M.P.P.

Physician, Children's Hospital Boston and Boston Medical Center

Author, Common Threads: Celebrating Life with Down Syndrome.
