A Poem
Thelma and Frank Grein adopted Roger, and with Frank away at war Thelma learned of Roger's disabilities. Some said don't expect much. Some said take the boy back. Thelma loved Roger instead, completely, and at her passing this poem was composed as but a brief testimony of her struggle, perseverance and faith.
