Some Related Comments:

My Child, My Gift is an important resource for parents who, prior to the birth of their child, receive the news that their child has been diagnosed with serious illness. Understandably, this can be a time of many questions and uncertainties for parents. For clergy, religious and counselors seeking to provide pastoral care and guidance, this book will be a great help in upholding the dignity of each and every life, and the truth that every child is a gift from God.

"If OBs and geneticists would pass this book along to parents upon diagnosis, perhaps fewer would feel that they are expected to terminate.”
