Q16: Writing With Grace

McFarlane accompanies Grace and her family to the World Down Syndrome Congress in Vancouver in August 2006.  She has a typical reaction to being immersed in the conference setting.

“…here Grace is the norm and Jessica and I are not.” P. 133

McFarlane can’t know how it feels to be a parent in this situation. We have a similar sense of belonging. Have you ever attended a national or international conference? How does your loved one feel around a group of other people with Down syndrome?
