Up, Not Down Syndrome

Uplifting Lessons Learned From Raising a Son With Trisomy 21


Up, Not Down Syndrome is a love letter and a map. Experience how it feels to think your life is over after having an unlovable baby. At first, the loss seems impossible to overcome. Alex becomes the author’s greatest teacher. Love is stronger than fear. Everyone has gifts. The book consists of three parts: the story, the lessons Alex taught the writer, and Alex’s perspective. Up, Not Down Syndrome is a promise to stay positive, no matter what: up, not down.

  • Explore what it feels like to think life, as you know it, is over.
  • Discover the fierce love, joy, and peace a baby diagnosed with Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome) brings.
  • Learn the lessons this child taught his mom.
