New Parenting Book Available

The new book, “Raising a Child with Albinism: A Guide to the Early Years” is now available for purchase.  It is published by the National Organization for Albinism and Hypopigmentation (NOAH) and is the first of its kind.  This book will be an invaluable resource for new parents of a child with albinism.  It truly is a great book.  I’ve already bought 6 copies. 😛 I am also one of the 20 contributing writers and one of the 8 contributing photographers.  🙂   You’ll find pics of my Lyra on pages 41 and 88.

Here is the book description from the NOAH website:
