From the Foreward by Jean Vanier

This is a precious little book. It reveals people who have intellectual disabilities, in a new way. Since about 40 years, people are beginning to discover that those with these disabilities are real people and should not be put into big institutions away from society.
It tells us, through the experiences of the author, that they can teach us to become more human, and so bring change to our society.
They can teach us about relationships, about spirituality, about fidelity and open hearts, kindness and compassion, all these virtues which are so frequently crushed in our society where people seek more about winning and power. I hope each reader can discover in a new way what it means to become really human.
