Raising a child with Down syndrome
There is a powerful story called Welcome to Holland that has been read knowingly by parents of children with disabilities. Jennifer Graf Groneberg read this story too and it influenced her new book: Road map to Holland: How I found my way through my son's first two years with Down syndrome.
After giving birth to twins, one of Jennifer's sons was diagnosed with Down syndrome. This book is a powerful, honest book about discovering the diagnosis and learning how to best love and help your child even when they're on a different journey than anticipated. Indiana residents can contact us at 812-855-9396 or cedir [at] indiana [dot] edu to borrow this book. Out-of-state residents can find the book at a local public library.
