Five years later, Down syndrome is not so scary anymore ...
A few weeks ago, I had the chance to talk with Diane Markins of Words in High Def about A Good and Perfect Gift and having a child with Down syndrome. You can listen to the interview by visiting her website and listening to the MP3.
While you're there, you'll find a guest post I wrote in conjunction with the interview about how other people can respond when a friend receives an unexpected diagnosis of Down syndrome (or, I imagine, another disability or illness). I describe four things that help: prayer, meals, honesty, and compassion rather than pity. Click here to read the post in full.
What has helped, and what has hurt, when friends have responded to hard news in your life?
