Love this story of about a family of 7 siblings, 6 girls and 1 boy with Down Syndrome! Inspirational and very real, down to earth. Everyone needs to read this book!
A true tale of a family and their love for Matthew, who was born with Down Syndrome. Definitely a good read for anyone interested in the lives of those with Down Syndrome. Shocking revelations of what it was like to have had a child with Down Syndrome before people were willing to talk about it. Also, if you have read or seen "The Memory Keeper's Daughter, this would be a great read for you as well.
