Amy Silverman

In her new book, journalist, blogger, and NPR contributor Amy Silverman tells the story of the birth and growth of her daughter, Sophie, and the Down syndrome diagnosis that changed everything.  Amy wrote the book she desperately wanted to read but couldn't find, meant not just for parents of kids with Down Syndrome, but rather a story for anyone touched by disability, a story about science, and a story about being different: something that all of us can certainly identify with.  Part memoir, part investigative reporting, part parenting manual, the book is a crash course in genetics, history, politics, education, medicine, health care policy, marriage, and motherhood.
