Kathryn interviews mother and activist Eliza Factor, author of “Strange Beauty: A Portrait of My Son”. This intimate, no-holds barred memoir is the story of two little girls growing up in the shadow of their charming and fitful brother and of a mother imagining the world through the eyes of her son born with multiple disabilities, including cerebral palsy and autism. Eliza describes her pregnancy and the first few blissful months with Felix before the awareness that their son’s life, and their own, will not be at all like she had imagined.
