|About the Book|
Bureaucracy is all-pervasive. Its found in the medical field, in education, in government, and many times the message it imparts is one of arrogance and callous indifference. This message should never play a part in the life of any child. At the age of eight, without any warning, Kathleen Mortons daughter, Michele, had gone from a life any normal eight year old experienced, to the unimaginable. Without any warning Micheles world of light now became a world of darkness. She became blind. Suddenly catapulted into the world of the handicapped, her mother was shocked at the stumbling blocks that she was faced with, the extraordinary challenges Michele had to endure, and the sea of bureaucracy that seriously threatened the quality of life for Michele. Kathleen Morton writes with humor, indignation, frustration, sensitivity, emotion and compassion. She tells the reader about the pitfalls, the struggles and the barriers a parent must endure, the determination one must have in order not to be beaten down by the system, and that giving up is not an option.
