"Kelle Hampton is the author of the popular blog Enjoying the Small Things and the mother of two daughters (she's also expecting a baby boy). When her second daughter was born, she and her husband were distressed to find that she had Down syndrome. But in addition to learning the hard lesson that perfection can come in any form, she has become an advocate for those with Down syndrome. Despite her fears for her daughter, which she shares honestly, Hampton's memoir of her daughter's first year is sunny and inspiring." June 2013 Biography and Memoir newsletter

Gorgeous photography; and written from her heart about her two daughter's births and the first year of life for Nella, her youngest child, who has Down syndrome.
