Today’s adult blog spotlight is on Sherry Palmer who writes about her son Charley at Life With Charley.

Life with Charley and Down syndrome

Charley is one of those guys whose smile can melt anyone’s heart.  His mother’s writing style is so honest and funny, that readers can’t help but fall in love with both of them.  
I fell for Charley back in February when a story appeared about Charley’s trip to the doctor’s office.  The scene sounded so familiar.  It was like Charley had channeled my own son that day.  Sherry’s ability to capture those moments that other people wouldn’t recognize is a gift.  It’s a real pleasure for me to read of Charley’s adventures and understand that I’m not alone – someone else out there “gets it.” 
Is there a nurse in the house?

We got to “meet” Charley and Sherry and her husband, Brad, during a recent radio interview.  The were all so friendly and open it felt like “old home week” on The Road.  

This week, Sherry’s first book was published!  Life With Charley: A Memoir of Down Syndrome Adoption is a chance for all of us to get to know them better.  We’re so excited about the new book we’re going to feature it next month in our Story Club!  If you’d like to join us, we’re giving our community a chance to win a copy of the book!
