About us

The Now I See Project shares personal and poignant stories to dispel outdated ideas and shed light on the potential and possibilities for people with Down syndrome today. We also seek to empower the voices of people with Down syndrome, their families and friends.

Now I See is a non-profit project, with proceeds used for distributing our book, Now I See: The Enriching Journey of Raising Children with Down Syndrome, to new parents and health professionals.

The book's creators, Angela Blakston and Carolyn McDiarmid, each have a son with Down syndrome, born six months apart. They were good friends before their wonderful sons came along. They created Now I See together because it was the type of book they had hoped to read when their sons were born.
