This was one of the first books I read after Alex was born. It is extremely funny, insightful and thought provoking. It is about the journey of Martha (pregnant with Adam) and her husband (both Harvard graduates working on another degree) into the unexpected, sometimes mysterious world of Down Syndrome. It is about realizing that all lives have meaning and purpose even in a world where education, status, and climbing the ladder to success often defines worth. Martha and her husband find the true meaning of life.
