5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you, Martha Beck!, 25 May 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Expecting Adam: A True Story of Birth, Rebirth, and Everyday Magic (Hardcover)
I read like a fiend and must say this is one of the best books I've read in ages. This is not the the sad tale of a yuppie couple expecting a child with Down's. It is an honest, insightful and yes, even humorous, account of this strong and interesting woman's journey to the acceptance of her less-than-perfect baby. Anyone can appreciate Beck's dilemma as she decides not to terminate her pregnancy and faces the fallout from that decision. Beck takes us on a truly heartbreaking but wonderful journey as she faces the unknown. Written beautifully, told with painful honesty...I can't recommend this book highly enough. Be forewarned, however, Beck does dabble in the spiritual and mystical challenging the acceptance of even the most open-minded soul. I have recommended this book to all my friends and family. Those who have taken the plunge have loved it as well. If you don't read this book you are truly missing out on a tale which will warm your heart, make you laugh and cry out loud and cause you to examine your own beliefs and value system. Thank you, Martha Beck!
