Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
7 Hrs.18 Min.


Living in the Belgian Congo with her husband in the 1960s, Fran's mother became pregnant with a daughter. However, right after she gave birth in the hospital, she felt strange. Unbeknownst to anyone, another daughter was on the way, but before anybody responded, an hour had passed. Because of the delay, Fran was born with cerebral palsy. Growing up with her siblings in Africa, Fran always felt different. When everyone else was playing and having fun, she would watch and wish she could join in. After the family moved to Scotland and Fran grew older, her hurt turned into anger, self-hatred, and suicidal depression. Then one day, someone looked at her and saw a woman to love, and that was the start of her journey to self-acceptance. Fran has written the painful truth about her life to help listeners understand how disabled adults really feel. In her revealing account, she shows just how hard it is to maintain the appearance of a "normal" life. More importantly, out of her million and one mistakes have come lessons in real acceptance, peace, and joy, which she would like to share with her listeners.
