Description

When Oscar was diagnosed with Down Syndrome at birth, Sarah had to come to terms with her new normal. In For the Love of Oscar the author describes how, for a while, she grieved for the baby she always believed and hoped she'd have and how she suddenly found herself on a different path to the one she'd always seen herself on.

For the Love of Oscar will take you on a journey of the very raw and real emotions she experienced, a journey both heart warming and funny in parts. She talks candidly about the ups and downs of not only parenthood but also parenting a child who happens to have additional needs. About people's attitudes towards her and her child and the ridiculous things some say. She talks about the choices she faced when she made the decision she'd like to go on and have more children. The hospital appointments, the therapy sessions, the mountains of paperwork, the tantrums, the tears and the really stinky nappies.
