Genetic counselors do an amazing job, helping families to understand what their child's diagnosis might mean for their lives. This message was sent to the Super Power Baby Project Facebook page:
I just wanted to write and tell you what has just happened at work with your book today. I work at clinical genetics in South Australia. I have been following your story for a while and got my book this morning. I took it to work and we have been reading over lunch. The reaction by one of the clinical geneticists was a little unexpected. I looked up and saw she was crying. She was just amazed and loved the aspect of positivity and was very overwhelmed by it. (in a good way!)
She has asked that we buy a copy for the work place now and the genetic counselors are talking about ways that we can change the way we talk to families to include a time where families can share their child's "super powers" as these things are just as important (to me probably more) as the medical information.
So overall - thank you. For a group who work with children like this everyday, you have showed us another side.

We see it as really important that the Super Power Baby Project is in as many stores as possible so that people just stumble upon it. If book lovers pick the book up and flick through the images and stories of ever inspiring super power children they will have the same realisation as many other who've seen that "There is an important and profound message captured in this book. Each of these kids seem to have a significant influence on the people around them."
