Présentation de l'éditeur

Through parenting a child with a disability, a father discovers patience, acceptance, and unconditional love.

In 1987, Paul Austin and his wife Sally were newlyweds, excited about their future together and happily anticipating the birth of their first child. He was a medical student and she was a nurse.

Everything changed the moment the doctor rushed their infant daughter from the room just after her birth, knowing instantly that something was wrong. Sarah had almond-shaped eyes, a single crease across her palm instead of three, and low-set ears—all of which suggested that the baby had Down syndrome.

Beginning on the day Sarah is born and ending when she is a young adult living in a group home, Beautiful Eyes is the story of a father's journey toward acceptance of a child who is different. In a voice that is unflinchingly honest and unerringly compassionate, Austin chronicles his life with his daughter: watching her learn to walk and talk and form her own opinions, making decisions about her future, and navigating cultural assumptions and prejudices—all the while confronting, with poignancy and moving candor, his own limitations as her father.

It is Sarah herself, who, in her own coming of age and her own reconciling with her difference, teaches her father to understand her. Time and again, she surprises him: performing Lady Gaga’s "Poker Face" at a talent show; explaining how the word "retarded" is hurtful; reacting to the events of her life with a mixture of love, pain, and humor; and insisting on her own humanity in a world that questions it. As Sarah begins to blossom into herself, her father learns to look past his daughter’s disability and see her as the spirited, warmhearted, and uniquely wise person she is.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Honest and touching 30 octobre 2014

Painful, honest, incredibly touching and revealing, Paul Austin's account of his family's life following the birth of his daughter, Sarah, is emotionally gripping. I could hardly put it down. As with anyone, Sarah has her highs and lows, her triumphs and her struggles. Paul's greatest challenge is to see her not as a daughter with Down Syndrome, but simply as a daughter.

BEAUTIFUL EYES will bring a tear to your eye, a smile to your lips, and even the occasional growl of anger (as when a doctor off-handedly comments that Down Syndrome children "make good pets"). Highly recommended!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Well Done: A Must For a Parent or Parent To Be... 10 janvier 2015
Par P. E. Knopick - Publié sur
Our son, age 30, has Down syndrome. So when an interesting book comes out on the topic, we read it. Our son has been a light in our life. But just as this good book describes, there are difficulties, incredible worries, sometimes sickening feelings. This is well done, At times it lacks the tenderness I would hope from a Dad and at other times it goes off in tangents. But all in all the author should feel very proud of his work as a writer and as a Dad.

Really identifies everything you would research if you had a child with Beautiful Eyes in your family, or you wanted to learn about Trisomy 21, Down Syndrome. We have a Beautiful Eyes 3yr. old grandchild. Having spent much time researching, trying to let this sink into my saturated brain, this gave me even more than I could have ever imagined. I call him a Gift, and he is very beautiful, and a twin to an equally beautiful Typical brother.
