Andrew Solomon tells the stories of parents who not only learn to deal with their exceptional children but also find profound meaning in doing so. He writes about families coping with deafness, dwarfism, Down syndrome, autism, schizophrenia, multiple severe disabilities, with children who are prodigies, who are conceived in rape, who become criminals, who are transgender. While each of these characteristics is potentially isolating, the experience of difference within families is universal, as are the triumphs of love Solomon documents in every chapter.

Abstract
This instructional manual and its accompanying resource guide are designed to help parents and caregivers assist individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities in their exploration of self and sexuality. It is the author's hope that by using these resources, both parents/caregivers and family members will gain a deeper appreciation of this sensitive subject, and that when the person with a disability reaches adulthood he or she will be better prepared to live and participate as independently and safely as possible in the community.

Abstract
Dans un style vif et franc, ce livre relate, dans sa plus grande partie, le cheminement émotif une jeune enfant malade et celui, plus « secret » et intérieur, de sa mère. Le quotidien familial, entre la maison et hôpital, évoque tous les impacts physiques et psychologiques de la maladie chez enfant. Ce point de vue est appuyé par deux textes de soignants qui se trouvent au coeur même de cet accompagnement si particulier de enfant et de sa famille, deux textes porteurs observations concrètes et de réflexions concernant, entre autres, hospitalisation de enfant aux besoins particuliers et humanisation des soins dans notre système de santé.
