As the adage goes, "You can only be as happy as your unhappiest child." With that as the emotional backdrop for Table for Five, Ted navigates the unparalleled challenges of parenting triplets born prematurely. Ted makes the conscious choice to downshift from the fast lane of an elite, MIT grad, to a devoted, compassionate father - to a life challenge that's mostly out of his control. How he and wife Christine manage the heartbreaks and joys of this journey is not only deeply educational for all parents, but also a heartwarming inspiration for all readers.
