Book DescriptionLong Time No See is an inspiring story, but Beth Finke does not aim to inspire. With unflinching candor and acerbic wit, she chronicles the progress of the juvenile diabetes that left her blind at the age of twenty-six as well as the seemingly endless spiral of adversity that followed. First she was forced out of her professional job. Then she bore a multiply handicapped son. But she kept moving forward, confronting marital and financial problems and persevering through a rocky training period with a seeing-eye dog. Finke's life story and her commanding knowledge of her situation give readers a clear understanding of diabetes, blindness, and the issues faced by parents of children with significant disabilities. Because she has taken care to include accurate medical information as well as personal memoir, Long time No See serves as an excellent resource for others in similar situations and for professionals who deal with disabled adults or children.
