I love reading the parent quotes and the photographer, Jagatjoti's, raw feedback of what he experienced while taking their portraits.
If this book would have been produced and available when our daughter, Iris, was first born, as a new parent of a child with Down Syndrome experiencing a wide array of uncertainty and fear, this book would have helped ease my anxiousness and provided confidence, encouragement, and excitement for Miss Iris' future. Thank heavens Iris did that on her own! But that aside, I am happy this book is now available for the world to see we are more alike than different. Thank you for having the vision and producing this, Jagatjoti Singh Khalsa!
My husband's feedback (Iris' father):
`I'm Down with You' is a beautiful picture book with heartfelt and inspiring descriptions from loved ones of individuals with Down syndrome. Jagatjoti magically presents just a moment in time the love and inspiration very few get to experience throughout a lifetime, transcending the generations from new born to mature adult. The medium of black and white photography absorbs the reader and creates a connection that is easily shared. The book is truly like no other and belongs on the coffee table, book shelf, or library of any relative, friend, care giver, or professional in the education and health care industry.

Yes...I can say that I really didn't know much about the intimate details of Down syndrome before my daughter was born. I was frightened for my newborn & not sure how family & friends would recieve her. Four years later I can see that I had NOTHING to be afraid of.
I would definetly recommend this book for parents/grandparetns expecting a newborn with Down syndrome as well as anyone else that is just curious & wants to see people with Down syndrome & their families for what they are....FAMILIES. :)
