Can parents balance the joy of a child s independence with the fear of letting go? As Kate examines the twinned emotions of faith and fear inspired by the families she meets as a chaplain and by her son s journey towards purpose and familyhood she learns that the threats we can t predict will rip us apart and knit us together."
