Review by: Laura Putnam on Sep. 23, 2012 : (no rating)
This is a powerful and moving story of a family's faith. The Crosier's beloved Simon "changed the clinical approach" of some of his professional caregivers thanks to his determination and his parents' advocacy. Told his syndrome was "incompatible with life" Simon's family relied upon their faith in God and later met individuals with the same diagnosis who were in their teens and thirties. Sheryl's journey raises important questions about how medical decisions are made and by whom. An important reminder that "love doesn't count chromosomes" this book will get you thinking about how our society treats the most vulnerable of its citizens.
