Her story is interwoven with family tragedies and joys as she devotes her life to teaching him, making sure everything possible is done to ensure his growth and learning. A fine young man emerges who is reading at three and by the time he is ten, he is playing the piano. He has since added the harmonica, xylophone and guitar to his musical talents and he has preformed publicly for the past several years. A source of encouragement for parents of handicapped children, and for educators who wish to understand more closely the life of a child with Down syndrome.
