"When Bernadette Agius -- an ambitious career-focused woman -- became pregnant, she imagined her child attending the best schools and dazzling everyone with his wit, charm, and intelligence. But those dreams disappeared when the doctors placed her baby boy in her arms and said he had Down syndrome. While her first impulse was to fight against this new reality, Bernadette soon found the strength to become the champion her now twenty-eight-year-old son, Richard, in the way he deserved. She forged a new life with the help of loved ones and a village of friendly faces, discovering along the way that everyone has a different version of normal. Again and again, Richard defied expectations to become the independent man he is today. Grounded in love, offering a message of hope, and told with humor and honesty, I'm Staying at Richard's shines a light on one woman's fierce, unwavering love for her son"--Back cover.
