Not Always Happy; An Unusual Parenting Journey ~ A memoir about adopting and raising a son with Down Syndrome that celebrates the quirkiness of life ~ with Kari Wagner-Peck

Not Always Happy is a humorous and sharp chronicle about adopting and raising a son with Down Syndrome from the Maine foster care system.  The author quickly learns that life is best lived by expecting the unplanned when she makes the decision to become a parent in her late forties.  As her unconventional family moves along in this life, she and her husband are less aware that they are raising an atypical child or an adopted child.  They are raising their child and their family struggles with the same universal themes that any family goes through.

Kari Wagner-Peck, MSW is a writer, blogger, and freelance development consultant while she homeschools her son.  She has been a professional advocate for homeless, incarcerated, and immigrant individuals and has worked as a documentary videographer, teaching videography at the college level.
