Love No Matter What

Video with Andrew Solomon

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 Andrew Solomon shares what he learned from talking to dozens of parents - asking them: What's the line between unconditional love and unconditional acceptance?  We will listen to this Ted Talk and have time for questions, sharingand support.

Andrew Solomon (born 30 October 1963) is a writer on politics, culture and psychology who lives in New York and London. He has written for The New York Times, and The New Yorker. His book The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression won the 2001 National Book Award, was a finalist for the 2002 Pulitzer Prize, and was included in The Times list of one hundred best books of the decade.
