A Life of Triumph: How a Girl with Cerebral Palsy Beat the Odds to Achieve Success

Author: Karen Gorr

Description: "Life of Triumph" is Karen A. Gorr's story of how her own determination, grit, stubbornness, and a sense of humor - and the help of friends and professionals - enabled her to find a life beyond an institution for the feeble minded. She shared her transformation from a "limp rag doll" into a scholarship student, teacher, public speaker, and advocate for those with mental and physical disabilities. Along the way, Ms. Gorr learns to forgive those who caused her so much suffering, and she's blessed with what she calls the "ultimate gift" - her own perfect daughter who has made the whole journey worthwhile.
