“Terrible Freedom from Expectations”
January 25, 2013 § 2 Comments
I came across this heartbreakingly beautiful article written by a mom, who happens to be an author & professor of creative writing, named Emily Rapp. In it, she reflects on her life as a mom to her son Ronan. I just ache for her and the many other parents like her whose stories I do not know. It seems unfair to get to learn from her family’s suffering – as a distant reader, far away from her shoes. But, learn we will. And, share we will. And, support we will.
