Just Cate is a dual memoir of two lifelong friends and the spirited child with Down syndrome who changes them forever.
Just Cate opens in the delivery room with Noelle Alix, a 29-year-old finance attorney in a large New York City firm, whose newborn daughter Cate is unexpectedly born with Down syndrome. On hearing the news, Noelle’s childhood friend, Angela Martin, is inspired by her quiet faith to write Noelle a heartfelt note in a baby card. This note and this child spark a transformative 12-year journey of renewed faith and friendship for both women—their second stage of growing up.
With humor and heart, the coauthor friends tell a dual tale of the angst and joys of raising a child with a disability, of the power of women friendship, and of Cate’s funny and poignant early years. Readers will come to embrace the spirited child, whose love for her robe, her lemons, and getting her way, comes above all else.

Ladies, let me first congratulate you on this terrific accomplishment. The flow of the story was excellent. The intermix of the voice of the authors was perfect. It was funny, inspiring, heartwarming and a "feel good" experience. It held your attention wanting to know what Cate would do next or what new crisis or challenge would be presented and how you all would somehow survive the unexpected. I have been drumming up business by telling folks to go on line and order it. Now that I have read it, I need to step it up. The two of you should feel really good. You have written a treasure that deserves a read by all. I have picked out the actresses to play you both in the up and coming Made for TV Hallmark Movie called "Just Cate" :-). Ange, Bridget Moynahan will play you and Noelle, Amy Carlson will play you.
