Summary Joyce Wallace Scott, MA, is the twin sister of Judith Scott. As an RN and developmental specialist she has worked for many years with children with Down Syndrome and other special needs. -- Publisher.
From birth fraternal twins Judith and Joyce Scott lived as if they were one person in two bodies, understanding instinctively what the other wanted and felt, despite the fact that Judy had Down syndrome, profound deafness, and never learned to speak or sign. At age seven Judy was taken from their shared bed while Joyce slept-- and the wholeness they had known was shattered. Decades later Joyce resolved to reunite with her sister. Now Joyce presents a penetrating personal narrative that explores a complex world of disability, loss, reunion, and the resiliency of the human spirit.
