How does a child feel when practically raised by his grandparents, blessed with the trait of slow learning and branded a retard?
This nearly nameless child, Timothy Wellington would grow to know his grandparents to be his real parents over time and would experience a grade repeat due to his inability to take tests and perform satisfactory on in-class work. Throughout Timothy's challenged youth, he would be forced to embrace a new religion only later to be brought back to his original religion with an iron fist. He would also suffer a lack of friendships, bullies, teasing and finally the ultimate humiliation brought around by one of his own teachers that would spark the battle between the kid, the state and the special education department. Based on a true story, this work of fiction is guaranteed to captivate your interest and shed new light into the eyes of parents and administrators alike about how the "system" can practically alter the life of one child who only wanted to be free.
