Exploring – more about Mary Craig

craigMary Craig’s book, Blessings, follows the ten years of life of her son, Paul. She tells how she dealt with the fact that he was born with Hohler’s Syndrome, or gargoylism, and with the kind of permanent care his condition demanded. It also tells how, in order to have something else in her life, she volunteered at a Sue Ryder Home for Holocaust survivors and the effect this had on her.

Her essay, The suffering son who gave me so much, which also deals with this time in her life, was reprinted in the Catholic Herald in 2011 and can be read on that paper’s website.
