That Went Well
Adventures in Caring for My SisterLarge Print - 2009
Meet Terrell Dougan's sister, Irene: a woman in her sixties who still believes in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny -- and who also enjoys playing those characters for the children at the local hospital. Whose favorite outfit includes Mickey Mouse knee socks and shorts. Whose refrigerator bears a magnet: Normal People Worry Me. When Irene was born, her parents were advised to institutionalize her. They refused and in turn their entire family had a life rich with stress, sorrows, hilarity, joy and overwhelming kindness from strangers.
