The daughter has remarkable vision, indefatigable drive and Down Syndrome. The mother has the refinement of an Oxford tutor and the focused passion of a she-bear. Both are writers. Together they possess the raw courage to take a long, unblinking look at their journey through adoption, disability, chronic illness, education, divorce, relocation, and the transition of an intellectually disabled child into adulthood.A masterful story, The Road Going is a resource and a co-navigator for every family member, friend or professional who seeks to help a person with disabilities to achieve greater self-sufficiency. You will weep. You will laugh. You will cheer. You will hold your breath as mother and daughter take you on the ride of a lifetime.
