Although this book is fiction, it tells the real life story of parents around the world who receive the difficult diagnosis that their son or daughter will be born with (in this case) Down Syndrome and the emotional roller coaster they're forced to face.
However, what we've discovered since publishing this project is that the emotions for nearly all prenatal or at birth diagnosis of any "abnormalities" as it's referred to by the medical community are extremely similar.
So many of us find hope by seeing our futures in the eyes of those who've already lived through the journey that we are just beginning.
We believe that our mission is to give our readers an experience that allows them to see through the eyes these parents and leaves them feeling hopeful of the future. It's through that hope that we know we can impact our culture and the lives of those with special needs and their families.
From the book: What would you do if you were told your child would be born different... very different?
When Sara and Jacob get the news that their baby will be born with Down syndrome, it threatens to destroy their marriage and their lives as their world suddenly spins out of control sending each of them each on a pathway of self-discovery and a boy with Down syndrome named Alex.
They both discover that their baby wasn't created by mistake but in fact by design.
Author's note: As parents of children born with chromosomal birth defects, most of us grieve the loss of a child that never existed while feeling guilty for grieving. It's a rarely discussed phenomenon but nearly every parent who receives this diagnosis experiences it in varying ways. Along the way we discover that our sons and daughters have a purpose and can achieve their own God given destinies.
The world may see our kids as handicapped, incapable of a normal Truth is; our son, John-Michael is more than capable... he's amazing and he's the best thing I never knew I always wanted.
