Peter and Vicky are five year old twins. They ask their mother if they can have a baby brother or sister. Family talks take place and in time, their mother is pregnant. As she progresses through the pregnancy it is discovered that she will have a baby girl, but she will be disabled. She will have Down’s Syndrome. Everyone helps out and baby is born. She is very healthy, beautiful and much admired. I found this story quite a challenge to write as my daughter, Mary Elizabeth, who is 49 years old, has Down’s Syndrome and Asperger Syndrome. An unusual combination. When I read the story to her, I asked her if she was upset by it. “No,” she said, “I found it interesting.” It is very realistic, believable, but a tear jerker in places.
