Now I See, (Ed) Angela Blakston
Dealing with a diagnosis of Down syndrome for a child can seem, at least initially, to be one of the biggest challenges a parent may ever face. Yet many who have taken this path, with the value of time, wisdom and hindsight, would now not have life – or their child – any other way.

In Now I See, 50 parents from Australia and New Zealand tell their personal and poignant stories of how they came, not simply to accept, but to embrace and celebrate life with their child with Down syndrome.

A number of Down Syndrome NSW members have their reflections published in this volume.
