The call for submissions for the Now I See book project are still open - contact the organisers now if you are interested in contributing:
Submissions are being sought from parents (both mums and dads) who have a child with Down syndrome and who are keen to write about their experiences: of how they dealt with their child’s diagnosis; of what they thought life would be like with their child and how, in reality, it has turned out to be; and the gifts (for instance, acceptance, respect, love, courage and delight) that child has brought into their lives.
The submissions will be compiled into a national book, with the working title Now I See. The book is aimed at raising awareness (and challenging outdated ideas) about life today for children with Down syndrome and their parents. All submissions will be considered.
