While most people meet their child for the first time in a delivery room, some parents have to meet their child in the reception area of an administrative building. Not Always Happy is a humorous and sharp chronicle about adopting and raising a son with Down syndrome from the Maine foster care system. The author quickly learns that life is best lived by expecting the unplanned when she makes the decision to become a parent in her late forties. As her unconventional family moves along in this life, she and her husband are less aware they are raising an atypical child or an adopted child. They are raising their child, and their family struggles with the same universal themes that any family goes through. Parents who have children with Down syndrome and other disabilities represent fifteen percent of all children between the ages of three to seventeen. Wagner-Peck provides an access point to start the debate about adopting a child with special needs along with her decision to homeschool. One of only a few books in the marketplace specifically addressing adopting from the foster care system. Kari Wagner-Peck, MSW, is a writer, blogger, and a freelance development consultant while she homeschools her son. She also has experience in arts management including development, event planning, and public speaking. Her writing has been featured in the Huffington Post, the New York Times’ ´´Motherlode´´ blog, the Sydney Morning Herald, Yahoo Parenting, Parents Magazine’s, and Empowering Parents. Kari Wagner-Peck currently resides in Portland, Maine. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ramona Master. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/088493/bk_acx0_088493_sample.mp3.

As the subject of a popular Web reality series, Suzanne Barston and her husband, Steve, became a romantic, ethereal model for new parenthood. Called ´´A Parent is Born,´´ the program’s tagline was ´´The journey to parenthood...from pregnancy to delivery and beyond.´´ Barston valiantly surmounted the problems of pregnancy and delivery. It was the ´´beyond´´ that threw her for a loop when she found that, despite every effort, she couldn’t breastfeed her son, Leo. This difficult encounter with nursing - combined with the overwhelming public attitude that breast is not only best, it is the yardstick by which parenting prowess is measured - drove Barston to explore the silenced, minority position that breastfeeding is not always the right choice for every mother and every child. Part memoir, part popular science, and part social commentary, Bottled Up probes breastfeeding politics through the lens of Barston’s own experiences as well as those of the women she has met through her popular blog, The Fearless Formula Feeder. Incorporating expert opinions, medical literature, and popular media into a pithy, often wry narrative, Barston offers a corrective to our infatuation with the breast. Impassioned, well-reasoned, and thoroughly researched, Bottled Up asks us to think with more nuance and compassion about whether breastfeeding should remain the holy grail of good parenthood. 1.

In Typeset in the Future , blogger and designer Dave Addey invites sci-fi movie fans on a journey through seven genre-defining classics, discovering how they create compelling visions of the future through typography and design. The book delves deep into 2001: A Space Odyssey , Star Trek: The Motion Picture , Alien , Blade Runner , Total Recall , WALL - E , and Moon , studying the design tricks and inspirations that make each film transcend mere celluloid and become a believable reality. These studies are illustrated by film stills, concept art, type specimens, and ephemera, plus original interviews with Mike Okuda ( Star Trek ), Paul Verhoeven ( Total Recall ), and Ralph Eggleston and Craig Foster (Pixar). Typeset in the Future is an obsessively geeky study of how classic sci-fi movies draw us in to their imagined worlds - and how they have come to represent ´´THE FUTURE´´ in popular culture.
