It is a great book. My local bookstore (a very good one) ordered it in for me - it took about 6 - 8 weeks to arrive but was worth the wait. I am sure you could organise for them to order it in again and mail it to you although that seems a bit of a hassle - let me know if you want their details. there is also an online business - Silver Eye education that has lots of special ed stuff - I don't know that they have Gifts in stock but they might be able to order it in for you - I have their web adress somewhere too if you like.

Kris,

If you look at the links in my previous post, it will show a copy of the cover and the editor's name. It's basically written by mums about their experience having a kid with DS:

Quote :
"Having a baby with Down syndrome is not something most parents would willingly choose. Yet many who travel this path discover rich, unexpected rewards along the way. In this candid and poignant collection of personal stories, sixty-three mothers describe the gifts of respect, strength, delight, perspective, and love, which their child with Down syndrome has brought into their lives. The contributors to this collection have diverse personalities and perspectives, and draw from a wide spectrum of ethnicity, world views, and religious beliefs. Some are parenting within a traditional family structure some are not. Some never considered terminating their pregnancy some struggled with the decision. Some were calm at the time of diagnosis some were traumatised. Some write about their pregnancy and the months after giving birth some reflect on years of experience with their child. Their diverse experiences point to a common truth: the life of a child with Down syndrome is something to celebrate. These women have something to say - not just to other mothers but to all of us."

Thanks girls.
Looks like a great book.

I don't go over to Downsyn any more. I did for a little while but that was a few years ago. I just found it hard to keep up. Most of the members being o/s and all.

In case anyone is interested they are publishing a second volume of "Gifts" and are taking submissions for stories. I think it would be great if we were to get a couple of stories published about our kids "Down Under" Smile http://www.group.segullah.org/ I hope ive done this right, this is the web page for the info.

I can't write, you know that Cas. I just lived a great story and told it to a lot of people, including you. Why don't you write it on my behalf Cas? Many thanks for your confidence in me.
