I’ve been angry. We’ve been to the best doctors all over the country. We got lots of diagnoses. But it wasn’t until we saw Dr. Books that we actually got any help.
I remember the day she asked my son a question, and he lit up with relief that someone actually saw who he really was. How do I describe what that was like for him? It was as if, in that moment, he was redeemed.
In a note sent to Dr. Books four years later:
Many things have come to pass since we last talked, most for the better. Ted is living in Evansville, Indiana and is attending Ivy Tech Jr. College. He is maintaining an A/B average in his first semester with three courses in English, Algebra, and Business.
I will forever be grateful for your kindness and the way you touched our lives.
