Loving Lindsey: Raising a Daughter with Special Needs is a story of Linda and her strong-willed daughter Lindsey--a high-functioning young adult with intellectual disabilities--who have always had a complicated relationship. But when Lindsey graduates from Silverton High School at nineteen and gets a job at Goodwill, she also moves into a newly remodeled cottage in her parents' backyard--and Linda believes that all their difficult times may finally be behind them.
Life, however, proves not to be so simple. As Lindsey plunges into adulthood, she experiments with sex, considers a tubal ligation, and at twenty quits Goodwill and runs away with Emmett, a man more than twice her age. As Lindsey grows closer to Emmett, she slips further away from her family--but Linda, determined to save her daughter, refuses to give up.
