Author of 'Welcome to Holland' speaks

Ellen at Love That Max has posted an interview today with Emily Perl Kingsley (left), who wrote Welcome to Holland in 1987 about the experience of giving birth to a child with a disability.

Emily's son Jason (right), who has Down syndrome is now 36.

"Savor whatever experience you are fortunate enough to have," she says. "Make the most of the hand you are dealt. Try to find beauty in each day if you can."

Ellen's interview with Emily is worth a read. Louise


Thanks for posting this link, Louise! Of course, I know the essay but I've never read anything of an interview with Kingsley. I'm so happy that Ellen published her interview -- especially for today.

Happy World Down Syndrome Day!♥
