Elizabeth and William's story starts in a New Hampshire delivery room when Elizabeth knew that he had Down syndrome, but like everyone else was too scared to say it. In this book, Elizabeth traces her personal journey beyond the maze of social, governmental, medical, and school bureaucracies that accompany people with different abilities. Her mission has always been to bust the stereotypes people create, not just around Down syndrome, but around anyone with a difference. As you meet William in these pages you will see that he is just like everyone else except that he has an extra chromosome, and that Elizabeth, though facing uncommon challenges, is like every other mother devoted to raising a healthy child and seeing him into adulthood.
