Overview

Angel Behind the Rocking Chair by Pam Vredevelt, Pam Vredebelt

After the loss of her first baby and the birth of a fourth child with Down Syndrome, Pam Vredevelt felt that she had fallen from God's grasp. As she was soon to discover, however, God was just beginning to hold her tight and lead the way out of her endless pit of despair. With humor and touching insight, Pam unveils her struggle to emerge from darkness into the light in this paperback release of her popular work. Many have been touched by the same anguish; Pam shares their stories and how the supernatural touch of God sustained them through the darkest days of life.

I've read almost all the personal accounts of raising a child with DS, and this is the most realistic and hopeful one. Yes, I share the author's world view and faith, and that influences my opinion. But I am also a parent of a child with DS, and Vredevelt's reactions and perceptions frequently mirror my own. If you're not offended by Christianity (or even if you are), and you want a good account of the early years of life with a child with DS, this is it.

This was one of the better books I have read regarding the disappointments we endure in life and how they can become the pivotol forces that propel us from mediocrity into excellence. It is inspirational and uses real life experiences from many people to illustrate the author's points. There are laugh out loud moments as well as crying moments. I think the author is trying to tell us we are all valuable and the heartbreaks we endure may be what saves another persons' sanity or life, as well as what creates in us the strength to grow beyond our own standards. The most disadvantaged persons may be the ones who bring about the biggest positive changes in our world.
