What Time Is the 9:20 Bus?
A Journey to a Meaningful Life,
Disability and All

by Lucinda Hage

ISBN 978-0-9936526-0-8


A woman unable to have her own child and anxious to adopt is overjoyed when a newborn baby is granted to her and her husband. Devastation follows, however, when the baby, Paul, is diagnosed with a serious genetic disorder that means he will be intellectually challenged and require medical intervention for the rest of his life. Her already tenuous marriage disintegrates, and she becomes a single mother caring for a difficult, fragile child.

With exceptional resilience, tenacity, faith and very hard work, she makes a successful life not just for herself but for her son. Summer camp changes his life; she finds a new partner and love. The reader cheers for Paul as he struggles to take his rightful place in society, and for his mother as she works ceaselessly to make that possible.

Lucinda Hage shares her extensive reading and her thoughtful insights into the systems and forces that keep those who are difference, apart and down. But with painful honesty, she also allows us to follow the journey of a mother who has fought so hard for her son that when the time comes to let him go, that release is a struggle as hard as any other.

"This excellent book should be read by all who seek to build a society where every person is seen as valuable."
--Jean Vanier
