Kathryn Hulings Releases LIFE WITH A SUPERHERO: Raising Michael Who Has Down Syndrome
"LIFE WITH A SUPERHERO's greatest strengths are the aesthetic value of the writing-it's very lyrical and beautiful-and the uncommon perspective on parenting an older child with Down syndrome."- Kathryn Soper, Author (THE YEAR MY SON AND I WERE BORN)
"...from the first page, this memoir that reads like a novel brims with characters who sometimes struggle mightily yet in the end perform lionhearted feats almost every day, year after year-from adoptive mom Kathryn Hulings to her husband Jim and their biological kids to inspired teachers of many kinds. By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Kathryn Hulings' debut book is a moving portrayal of family and community dedication and love."- John Calderazzo, Author (RISING FIRE: VOLCANOES, OUR INNER LIVES).
