What would you do when the beautiful baby you've adopted turns out to have serious disabilities? When the doctors tell you to "give her back"? When you're also struggling to build a business, finish school and hold your marriage together? Lessons from Katherine is a spiritual memoir about loving and parenting our disabled child amidst grief, financial difficulty, and marital discord. It's the struggle of every young marriage and family: to hold on, to form a family, to carve out a place in the world--but amplified. Glenda Prins is an ordained United Church of Christ pastor; she lives in Rochester, NY with her husband.
