A Child in the Shadows: A Mother's Fight for Her Son
It wasn't until my third round of meetings that my understanding of these families turned into a revelation. These wonderful people, like me, are survivors. They are strong and their capacity to love stronger still. They shouldn't be pitied. They should be applauded. I suddenly felt honored to be sitting with them, to join them and to become one of them.
Kathryn Ekdahl had two children, and then sixteen years later she had Quinn. From very early on, Kathryn knew that Quinn was a little different than her other children. The differences were small at first, but over the years it became more and more clear that Quinn was A Child in the Shadows.
From school to school and therapy to therapy, Kathryn's struggle to help Quinn while still taking care of herself has been never ending. It's hard to believe how one family can go on for so long without anyone offering a helping hand. In this true story of one mother's incredible journey of love, faith, and hope, readers in all situations will be heartbroken and inspired. Read on in A Child in the Shadows: A Mother's Fight for Her Son.
