Library Thursday: new book review, extract from a well loved book

A Dad's Love: Professor Writes About Son With Down Syndrome
Gary White, The Ledger, 10th January 2015

Gifts 2: How People With Down Syndrome Enrich the World, (Kathryn Lynard Soper, ed, 2009) is a popular book, especially with younger families, available for loan to members from our library. Ellen Stumbo has posted her essay for the book, Not a Mistake, on her blog.
