Power of Caring Series
and Death What are the Facts - Reflections
and Soul Life and Death What are the Facts I talk about Sarah and
her book which so greatly influenced me when I was a student studying
psychology entitled 'Will, My Son' and now, as I prepare to release
the ebook version my research shows that she has written another
successful author and journalist Sarah detailed how the birth of
her handicapped son brought shock and disappointment to her, her
husband and grand parents. However as Will short life unfolded her
reflected back to her a new dimension of simple love, simple caring
and the most important gift to these adults life. A gift of seeing
beyond what we suppose life is at every level.
eighteen years after the death of her son she write about In 1981,
Sarah Boston published the award-winning "Will, My Son: The
Life and Death of a Mongol Baby", in which she told the story
of the birth, the nine-month-long life and the death of her son
Will, born with Down's syndrome. The book served as a catalyst to
debate about disability, maternal grief and medical practice. This
book celebrates what would have been Will's 18th birthday. Written
in the same style, this book looks at what has and has not changed
in the last two decades in society's attitudes to Down's syndrome,
to infant death and to maternal grief.
author looks at the effect of the publication of the first book
on her and her family, at the couple who decided to adopt a Down's
baby after reading it, at the "burden of preciousness"
her daughter has carried, at current issues of ante-natal testing
and medical practice and, crucially, at the longevity of grief.
