I would give this book more than 5 stars if I could
Since my son was born with Down syndrome three years ago, this book and the story of the Fairchilds has given me a better perspective, greater strength and help in understanding why things happen as they do. I must echo another reviewer who said that it helps so much to know that you are not alone in what you are feeling and experiencing. This book is a must read for anyone who has a child with special needs, but especially for anyone who has been competitive or a high acheiver who is blessed with having a child with special needs.Was this review helpful?

Someone to Relate To
When you undertake a "journey" like this it is comforting to know there are others who have gone before you, and felt what you have felt. It's not always easy or possible to talk with others about the emotions surrounding such a choice - it's not an experience many people can relate to. But when you read Greg, Tierney, and Naia's story you will find that you are not alone.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

A marvelous story with an important message
I loved the Boston Globe series about Naia, and I was thrilled to learn there was a book that told the story in even greater depth and detail. 'Choosing Naia' lived up to my high expectations. This is a book that should be read and treasured, not just for what it says about Naia's family but all our families.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
