Paul Austin is a local Emergency Room doctor and husband of WomanCraft member, Sally Somers Austin. He is also the author of a newly released book that is receiving accolades throughout the publishing world. Beautiful Eyes: A Father Transformed is a retelling, in his own honest and unflinching voice, the journey from the birth of his first born, a daughter with Down syndrome, to her happy placement in a group home as a young adult. It is a story of a relationship between a father and his daughter, a father determined to feel and think his way through the lethal prejudices of Down syndrome, and a daughter who ultimately teaches us about unconditional love, humanity and accepting and appreciating life as it is. This book is not only for parents of children with disabilities; it is for everyone who believes in the human connection.
“Beautiful Eyes will slowly enter your bloodstream, and change you.” Nick Flynn, author of The Captain Asks for a Show of Hands: Poems
