Hi Parents-in-Oxfordshire. I just wanted to let you know about an interview I am doing tomorrow on our local (Banbury) hospital radio station.

The lady I am interviewing a local mother of a 13 year old little boy with Downs Syndrome. She is going to be chatting to me about life and family experiences since he was born. She was particularly overwhelmed by the clinical and sometimes negative info she received concerning her son and his special needs, particularly immediately after his birth.

As a result of this, the lady in question has written a book called 'The Gift', to try and give parents an honest and different perspective on life with a child with Down Syndrome.
You can tune in live tomorrow (Fri 7th Jan 2011) at Radio Horton is also on FaceBook, so you can listen in and ask questions/make comments during the two hour show. Hope we can help.... x
