Monday coffee & other stories of mothering children with special needs
Mothers of children with special needs feel guilt, sadness, and joy simultaneously, which is hard to understand. The mothers in Monday coffee & other stories of mothering children with special needs don't seek pity; instead, they illustrate a complexity of emotions that start with diagnosis, explore care in both early and later years, and invite us to witness the aftermath of too-early deaths of their children. Weaving together essays, poems, and graphics by mothers of children with a wide range of disabilities, Jones and Whiteacre have edited a collection that highlights the challenges and joys of motherhood, exposing both fears and guilty pleasures as mothers explore their relationships with their children, partners, families, caregivers, educators, and the medical community. -book description
