How Lucky Am I?
by Kate Gibson

True friendship is a gift, a gift that all of us wish to receive. A true friend likes you for you, looks past your differences and embraces them. During childhood no gift is greater than having and being a true friend. Sometimes these friendships can materialize and flourish from unexpected places. How Lucky Am I acknowledges, explores, and showcases the traits we all possess to be a friend. With a focus on inclusive friendships and celebrating differences, How Lucky Am I outlines how a friend with Down Syndrome can enhance your life; offering you the unexpected gift of true friendship.

As a Special Education Teacher, Kate Gibson works with young adults with Down Syndrome and other neurodiversities. As an advocate for inclusive practices, Kate noticed that neurodiverse individuals are often underrepresented in the stories her students read. She set out to create a story celebrating the qualities her students exude and the gifts they offer the world. She hopes that families and schools will read her story and promote an increased awareness and inclusion of individuals with special needs. Kate lives at home in Toronto with her family and two dogs.
