Choosing Naia . . . is a refreshing tale in an age in which medical technology encourages us to strive for perfection in ourselves and in our children. It is, of course, a loss to learn that your child won’t be perfectly healthy. But, as Choosing Naia makes clear, few of us understand how much we may gain. –Maggie Jones, New York Times Book Review

Choosing Naia skillfully recounts how the Fairchilds’ initial shock and fear for the future of their unborn child gradually morphed into a determination to have the child and help her thrive after birth.” –Hartford Courant

“The story of the Fairchilds’ emotional and spiritual struggles is gripping-and relevant to everyone who’s ever cared for a child. Choosing Naia is a powerful and important book.” –Michael Bérubé, author of Life As We Know It: A Father, a Family, and an Exceptional Child

Choosing Naia is an accurate and courageous book, a chronicle with a joyous outcome. For all readers it will enhance understanding of family building and of human values. I recommend it earnestly.” –Dr. Allen Crocker, director, Down Syndrome Program, Children’s Hospital, Boston
