The Challenges and Accomplishments of a Woman with Down Syndrome
by Sherry Skramstad
A labyrinth of closed doors and legal obstacles confront a creative, inquisitive, and loving child who was born with Down syndrome in 1940s America. Wendy's Wisdom is the story of a girl born at a time in the United States when her future could have meant lifelong institution and early death. But through a stroke of fate—or intervention from God—Wendy went on to attend school, exceed the expectations of medical professionals, participate in the world of work and gaming, and help pioneer breakthroughs and the acquisition of rights for the handicapped. Join author Sherry Skramstad in her recollection of Wendy's lifelong journey as she relates the many lessons she herself learned from the simplicity but profundity of Wendy's Wisdom.
