A Positive Response to Serious Prenatal Diagnosis

My Child, My Gift provides practical advice and solutions through the insights and experiences of parents who, despite the predicted outcome, made loving, life-affirming decisions for their babies.


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.

Sean Cardinal O'Malley, O.F.M Cap.
Archbishop of Boston

"To call this book 'Every mother's Bible' would sound irreverent. But sincerely, this is undoubtedly the most profound and complete guide to understanding what love means at the heart of becoming a mother. This treasure piece is essential to every woman's library.”

Terri Green
Author of Simple Acts of Kindness

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