Blessed by a Saint: Stories about Grace
by Gerald L. Bowen, Jr.
Blessed by a Saint by Gerald L. Bowen, Jr. is a compilation of short stories that, while fiction, are based on real events. These are stories of a family as they go through their everyday life caring for a precious child left severely multi-handicapped, both mentally and physically, after a traumatic birth. What could not be known or understood at the time is what a blessing the child they named Grace would be in their lives, and the lives of others.
This angel sent from God achieves so much more than had been hoped and possesses abilities no one could have dreamed. "Grace finds goodness in everything" from the song Grace by U2.
This story will touch your heart and, hopefully, will move you to be more loving and understanding of individuals with disabilities. There is much that can be learned from these special people.
