My Fathers Eyes.png

My Father's Eyes is the story of Sheila Allee's relationship with her Uncle Melrose, who had a profound intellectual disability. She didn't know of her uncle for many years and accidentally discovered his existence when she was a teenager. Decades later, she found him in a state institution, where he had lived for more than 50 years, and helped him move to a group home. Through the process, she thought she was only righting a wrong that had been done when her uncle was ostracized from his family. But what really happened was that her Uncle Melrose helped her heal from her own emotional injuries.
