In her own and candid way, Frederique takes you on her quest to recognize and accept her limitations, her struggle and challenges, but most of all her possibilities. She had the choice; stuck in her disabilities, brain injury and Turner syndrome? Or get her strenght out of it. She chose the latter. In Freckles & Scratches you can read how she managed to achieve this.

From the book

I was in the hospital in a coma with a brain contusion and a broken collarbone. Luckily, I was out of the danger zone, but no one was able to tell how I would recover. My mom later told me that, while I was in a coma, she saw all kinds of parents down the street with children in wheelchairs, and she was afraid that I would end up like one of those children. The doctor told my parents that I would be awake in 72 hours. I had my eyes open regularly, I grabbed fingers, but otherwise I was not responsive. After 72 hours I was still not awake.
