The Memory Keeper's Daughter--a question and a giveaway
Did anyone see the movie The Memory Keeper's Daughter on Saturday? The movie is based on the book by Kim Edwards. We were busy on Saturday night, but I really wanted to see it because I really enjoyed the book.
The book is an interesting story about Down syndrome, but I think it is just as much about having to have complete control in life--sometimes things you didn't expect (even things you always thought were bad) lead to wonderful places...
I have a signed copy of the book that I got at the National Down Syndrome Congress Conference last summer (I have another copy so the signed copy is brand new.) If you leave a comment before NOON on Friday 4/18/08 I will enter your name in a drawing and will send you the book (US entries only this time, please--not up to international shipping this week!)
I am the mother of three, wife of one. I am a Partners in Policymaking graduate and a committed disability advocate. I want to catch up on my scrapbooking, learn more about art-journaling, get my house in order, read all the books I have set aside to read and change the world--not necessarily in that order. The opinions in this blog are my own and not those of any of employers.
