“Incompatible with Nature – A Mother’ Story” is the inspirational story of one woman’s fight to save her son’s life. That woman is Tracie Frank Mayer, and today her son Marc is thirty-five years old and thriving.
The award-winning narrative “Incompatible with Nature – A Mother’s Story” is the true story of a young black American woman who in the summer of 1984 uproots herself from family, friends and life as she knows it to marry a German man and move to his country. Tracie Frank Mayer does not speak the language and knows no one other than her husband when she gives birth six months later to her anxiously awaited son. Twelve days after his birth, a pediatric cardiologist says to her husband in German, “There is no surgery to save your son.” “Let your baby die,” he says to her in broken English. Their son, Marc is born with Heterotaxy Syndrome and only half of his heart.
Battling her husband, the doctors who don’t believe Marc can survive, his innumerable infections as well as her own fears, Tracie does her level best to hold on in the maelstrom while doing all she can to ensure that her son has a chance at life. This enthralling memoir is a remarkable tale of rebellion and resilience; an inspirational story of one woman’s fight for her child’s life and a testimony to the perseverance of the human spirit. With its triumphantly happy ending, Tracie’s story will surely give hope and encouragement to anyone facing any battle not of his or her own choosing.
