An exploration of the process of discovering that an expected child will be born with Downs Syndrome. The story is intriguing because it is set in the competitive mileau of Harvard, where the author and her husband were students during the pregnancy. Also unusual is that the expectant parents are blessed with visions during the pregnancy which help them cope and convince them that this is a special baby (shades of Touched by an Angel?). Beck's writing occasionally breaks down into the gushings of an adolescent girl. Still, it's a hopeful story, and will support readers dealing with similar situations.
