Waiting for Home
(Richard Prangley Story)

by John Schneider

Published by Wm. B. Eerdmans

Waiting for Home

A journalist, John Schneider, a daily columnist for Michigan's Lansing State Journal, had written a fairly objective and readable account of Richard Prangley, who at age 6 was put into the Coldwater State Home and Training School on the advice of their priest and two doctors, stating that he was too retarded to learn. The parents had a growing family and could not cope with Richard's handicaps, so they put him into an institution where he languished for fifteen years.

Changing times and some in-house tests showing that Richard was capable of learning trades after all, brought him gradually to the place where he was released to a half-way house, and he quickly learned to take charge of his own life.

After some time he became involved in lobbying for a memorial and legal changes to prevent such a thing ever happening to anyone else. This became his life's work, opening doors for him to meet politicians at all levels and give him purpose.

Mr. Prangley's personal faith may have been down-played a bit, but it is quite an inspirational story and well told.
