“It’s More Ups than Downs,” is a book of inspirational stories from families who have a child or loved one who also happens to have Down Syndrome. These families share the fears they had originally, but most importantly they share how those fears were put to rest and they see the blessings they have been given. This book came together out of the author’s desire to reach those entering this journey and those giving the diagnosis to new parents to remember, these children are special in their abilitys, they are wonderful to be with and they love like no other. They are created in God’s image and come into this world to make a difference.
This is an outstanding book! It's a great resource for families. The stories are honest and heartfelt. I particularly enjoyed the "span" of the book...From new parents coming to terms with a new journey, to an older gentleman much later in life. This book celebrates abilities, rather than focuses on disabilities. A must read!
