Have you ever felt alone in motherhood?
Mary spent her first pregnancy eager to meet her new baby boy. When an unexpected Down syndrome diagnosis for her son turned Mary's life upside down, she felt isolated in her shock and grief. She knew no one with Down syndrome, had no one to talk to, and nowhere to turn.
The discovery of a social media account that embraced and honored Down syndrome was the impetus for Mary to move from depression towards action. She learned that Down syndrome is nothing to fear, and that her son has a bright future ahead of him.
Through her story, you'll see how Mary found community, became an advocate, and founded a worldwide Down syndrome awareness blog, Limitlessnicholas.com. Mary writes to bring the same kind of power and community to mothers in every type of situation.
In A Truly Limitless Life, Mary recounts those first few months in a way that is raw, unfiltered, and unapologetically honest. Her 20 lessons are brought to us via her personal stories, struggles, and victories in early motherhood. Mothers of children with a Down syndrome diagnosis and beyond can appreciate and relate to this uplifting journey.
Nicholas has grown into a thriving young boy who serves as his family's living reminder that just about anything is possible as long as we have the courage to rewrite our own stories.
