A sophisticated memoir captures the poignant affections that arise nurturing a child born with Down syndrome.
A SNAPSHOT FROM THE HEARTEmily Carr School of Art graduate Kari Burk wrote and illustrated Snapshot of a Soul Space in the Land of Special Needs to chronicle her 25-year journey with daughter Mielle. A touching book that “speaks from the heart” about Down syndrome.
“The book is really a lot about gratitude for all thedifferent people that have been in Mielle’s lifethat have helped her,” said Burk, “because ofcourse when you have Down Syndrome, you needa lot of help, you need a lot of satellites of love to help you on the way. I mean we all do, but I thinkpeople with special needs need it more so.”
