Nature has a way of making changes in the family tree.  Andrew Solomon talked to hundreds of people in families where the children were born in a variety of circumstances... with disabilities or other differences from the parents. 

How parents and society cope is the focus of Solomon's book Far From The Tree

He visited in 2013, and we revisit that interview here.
