The Blood of the New Testament by D.
When you have a baby with a genetic disorder, they send you to see a geneticist. Sort of like a fortune-teller.
I really only had one question left for him: Do people with Down syndrome ever have curly hair? In our house, hair is a big deal.
Specifically, hair that curls. For weeks afterward, my husband Ray and I watched her head carefully for signs of curls. Perhaps Ray and I are so obsessed with hair because both of us had transformations when we learned to let our curly hair be curly.
For me that happened my junior year in college, when I spent a semester in London and got a spiral perm—going to the other extreme from my previous hairdo, which had required hours with the blow-dryer, round brush, and iron. Okay, so with the perm I looked like Dee Snyder from the heavy metal band Twisted Sister, but that was stylish in the late s, and finally, I felt good about myself.
I dated cute boys all summer. No way am I telling you anything. No, just an entire bottle of No-More-Tangles. She loved to shake her curls. She knew they made her special.

Before the doctor joined us in the exam room, we met with a genetics counselor who gave us some history. After Sophie was born and we got her diagnosis, Ray and I took very different approaches, which is weird, since he and I are both journalists, each of us in the habit of soaking everyone and everything for information on any given topic.

Chapter Three. The Jewish Question. To illustrate the history of the Jewish people from its earliest beginnings down through the ages to the present day, as seen and depicted by the Jewish mind itself, we give the following account from the Chicago Tribune, July 4, Biographical Sketch of Alexander Maclaren () Different from almost all the other famous preachers whose sermons are appearing in this series of volumes, the father of Alexander Maclaren, David, was not only a business man, but was the pastor of a church where he preached every Lord's Day.
