The Morris Book Shop is proud to host Kerry Boudreaux as he signs his new book PRISM: Seeing the World Through the Hearts of People with Special Needs.
About the book:
PRISM: Seeing the World Through the Hearts of People with Special Needs offers a unique perspective into what is possible when you share in the life of someone with special needs. Kerry Boudreaux was living a typical American life until the unexpected happened. He and his wife received the diagnosis that Kate, their third daughter, had Down syndrome. Kerry shares, "Life Glimpses" from his experiences of rearing a daughter with special needs. What he thought and anticipated was going to unfold versus what has actually happened are two totally different tales. Whether you're searching for some perspective as a new or expectant parent, or you're a family member of a child with special needs, or perhaps you just want an enjoyable read, Prism, Seeing the World Through the Hearts of People with Special Needs will be informative, entertaining, and inspirational.
