Where does one find meaning when one's witty, intelligent, beautiful daughter is hit by a car while a senior at one of the country's most prestigious universities and lies unconscious for close to eight months only to emerge severely brain injured? This book not only chronicles a family's journey through the health-care system but because the mother is a theologian and professor of health-care ethics examines the ethical concerns that arise when dealing with brain injury. It also reveals a mother's spiritual journey, which begins with facing the possibility that her child may die and continues into the world of disability.
