TARA by Michael & Donna Nason


Email this review


Nobody knows the troubles. . . the Nasons experienced and this is another account of a child with a severe brain injury (cf. Breisky's I Think I Can earlier in this issue). After returning from an almost literal death, Tara was taken to Easter Seal therapists for a time, a session with Kathryn Kuhlman, and finally the Institutes (their pediatrician considered it a waste of time rather than money). But Glen Doman found her ""our kind of kid"" with her midbrain injury easier to overcome which in time it was. This centers far less on the rehabilitative aspects but does include other physical disasters -- another child's meningitis, the birth of a baby with a tumor gratefully benign. All very simply, sometimes sentimentally, recorded from day to finally reprieved day.
