"In our current era where increasingly more couples learn about the diagnosis of Down syndrome prenatally, this incredibly moving 10th anniversary edition of Gifts sends a timeless message: people with Down syndrome are celebrated contributors to their families and communities."
-Brian Skotko, MD, MPP, Co-Director Down Syndrome Program at Massachusetts General Hospital

"Gifts is a treasure in our community, one which we share with our families. It has touched the lives of new and expectant parents, medical professionals, and beyond. The multiple voices of this book offer a range of emotions, perspectives, and experiences with such pure honesty and courage. The reader will feel the warmth and connectivity of this community, and the gift of knowing that they are not alone."
-Sarah Cullen, Family Support Director, Massachusetts Down Syndrome Congress, Burlington, MA (www.mdsc.org)

"Ever since my beloved son David (age 33) was born, I never wanted another mother's heart to grieve as much as mine did to hear the gut-wrenching diagnosis of Down syndrome. Each time I give Gifts to a new mom, I can guarantee two things will happen: first she will smile the biggest smile ever, and second, she will later tell me how this book helped turn her tears of sorrow into tears of joy. Thank you, Kathryn Lynard and Woodbine House for this updated Gifts!"
-Gina Johnson, proud mother of seven, and Founder and Director of Sharing Down Syndrome Arizona, serving families since 1991 (www.sharingds.org)

"Gifts is highly recommended for public library collections and the personal reading list of any parent or parent-to-be confronting the possibility of a Down's syndrome diagnosis for their child."
-Wisconsin Bookwatch (The Parenting Shelf), April 2017
