Courting with Chance is about Karen A. Gauff reconciling her memories with her mother's 96-page manuscript found after her mother's death. In the care of a mother who battled mental illness, Karen was fortunate to have survived neglect, sexual perversion, and violence while spending most of her childhood learning how to steal, survive, and sue others. Karen was on her way to becoming a statistic until she was given a chance to change the trajectory of her life.
This book is about the likelihood of Karen using the ugliness that surrounded her childhood journey as a chance to transform her problems into positive solutions which ultimately catapulted her onto the track of becoming a Judge.
Judge Gauff shares her very personal encounters with family disfunction and abuse, and her story of overcoming these many challenges through her faith. In the fullness of time, forgiveness and redemption reigned supreme.
