How to raise a child with Down syndrome: a nice overview

Amy Julia Becker often writes about her daughter Penny, who has Down syndrome in her blog, Thin Places.  She also writes occasionally for newspapers, magazines and other blogs as well, and has written a number of books.  

How to Raise a Child With Down Syndrome: Advice and Resources, 
her article is published this month by Parents magazine (US edition).  It is a nicely organised overview, that might help a new family, or one with a prenatal diagnosis, to organise their thoughts without too much overwhelming detail. It would be a useful place to refer other family members and friends to, as a  "this is where we need to start" answer to their "what can we do?" questions.

And there is a beautiful photo to go with it ...
