This Is What Perfect Looks Like

by: Ms Heather H House
From the minute she first laid eyes on her baby girl, Heather House knew what the doctors would not immediately tell her: one of her newborn twins had Down syndrome. In this thoughtfully candid memoir, House takes an unflinching look at the sometimes painful, often joy-filled, always humbling experience of being the mother of a child who has special needs. Genuine, raw, funny and engaging, This Is What Perfect Looks is as endearing as it is unsentimental. Initially disoriented by the change in her identity from “Spectacularly Competent Mom” to “Mother of a Child Who Has Special Needs,” it is the hard-won love for her daughter Fern that serves as her inner compass and ultimately leads House to recognize that she has everything she has ever dreamed of – and a little extra, too.
