What I've Learnt from My Daughter
All children who look at life from a perspective different than their parents can teach their elders incredible lessons about life and love and joy and acceptance. In What I've Learned From My Daughter, Nancy Jo Sullivan shares what she has experienced and learned from her eldest daughter, who was born with Down syndrome. Readers need not have personal experience of parenting a child with a disability to be enriched by the author's compelling stories and hard-won insights. In What I've Learned From My Daughter, Sullivan acknowledges her initial anger at God, her fears and uncertainties, her growing awareness that joy and beauty and promise are part of the birthright of the "special" child. Lively narrative, spiritual applications, and Scriptural references are interwoven in this honest account of one mother's journey of faith, a journey that will inspire readers of all faith traditions.
