Summary, etc.:
In the years leading up to the 1950's, there were not any resources for the challenged. They were placed in asylums or back rooms and left to die. They were never talked about or acknowledged. They were the silent children. The ones no one wanted. The ones who were never given a chance to live. Yvonne Mason has given us a story of success in a time of failure for the challenged. She has given a voice to a child born in 1952 who became challenged. This young man was not put away. He was not shunned and he was not ignored. Ms. Mason tells the story of Stan, her brother, who was never supposed to succeed. He was supposed to fail.
