Diversity unites us

What is it like to raise a child who’s different from you in some fundamental way (like a prodigy, or a differently abled kid, or a criminal)?

In this quietly moving talk, writer and speaker Andrew Solomon shares what he learned from talking to dozens of parents — asking them: What’s the line between unconditional love and unconditional acceptance?

Woven into these courageous and affirming stories is Solomon’s very personal journey to accepting his own identity, which culminated in his midlife decision, influenced by his research, to become a parent.

it is a touchingly told tale delivered with brutal honesty and integrity and is a fine example of simple storytelling.
