Dear Matthew: Today, at a little past noon, you died. What can I say? I hurt. Daddy hurts. Sometimes I want to die so I can be with you. I worry about who will feed you. Who will change you? My arms ache for you. This is the insightful and heartbreaking diary of a mother who began writing to her unborn son early in her pregnancy, and she continued writing to him years after his short life ended. Susan Clauson shares her personal story of elation, sorrow, questioning, and healing in her reflections on life, the loss of an infant, the joy of a second child, and surviving cancer (twice). In spite of it all, she emerges, inspired by her son, to help others who grieve the loss of a child. The death of a beautiful, innocent infant is so hard to deal with. You spend your life searching for answers to unknown questions. With death there are no answers. You can’t ask anything. You can only learn to accept it and hope that someday, when God wants you to know the answers, you will. Life goes on. Pain gives way to joy. We love you, Matty.

A Mother's Diary: How to Survive the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is a firsthand account of one woman's journey. It represents the struggle of thousands of women every year whose babies begin life in the N.I.C.U. Menetra Hathorn writes the entire book from her perspective - a mother's point of view. She begins by introducing you, the reader, to her world and giving some background information about how her journey began. Next, you walk with her the rest of the way - through a slow and tedious hospitalization. Then, she names and discusses 10 strategies that will help you survive the N.I.C.U. (and beyond). Finally, she shares some valuable insight with relatives and friends while recommending a variety of ways that they can help. A Mother's Diary: How to Survive the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit was written because Mrs. Hathorn was unable to find anything like it during her third child's 119-day hospitalization. She wanted to know that she wasn't alone, and she needed some common sense strategies she could implement to help save herself from drowning in a sea of grief, depression, and anxiety.

Diary of a Stage Mother's Daughter

A Memoir

Page: 304

View: 1970

The Glass Castle meets The Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother in this dazzlingly honest and provocative family memoir by former child actress and current Fox Business Network anchor Melissa Francis. When Melissa Francis was eight years old, she won the role of lifetime: playing Cassandra Cooper Ingalls, the little girl who was adopted with her brother (played by young Jason Bateman) by the Ingalls family on the world's most famous primetime soap opera, Little House on the Prairie. Despite her age, she was already a veteran actress, living a charmed life, moving from one Hollywood set to the next. But behind the scenes, her success was fueled by the pride, pressure, and sometimes grinding cruelty of her stage mother, as fame and a mother's ambition pushed her older sister deeper into the shadows. Diary of a Stage Mother's Daughter is a fascinating account of life as a child star in the 1980's, and also a startling tale of a family under the care of a highly neurotic, dangerously competitive "tiger mother." But perhaps most importantly, now that Melissa has two sons of her own, it's a meditation on motherhood, and the value of pushing your children: how hard should you push a child to succeed, and at what point does your help turn into harm?

As you prepare to become a mother, you face an experience unlike any other in your life. Having a baby will redirect your preferences and pleasures and, most likely, will realign some of your values.As you undergo this unique psychological transformation, you will be guided by new hopes, fears, and priorities. In a most startling way, having a child will influence all of your closest relationships and redefine your role in your family’s history. The charting of this remarkable, new realm is the subject of this compelling book.Renowned psychiatrist Daniel N. Stern has joined forces with pediatrician and child psychiatrist Nadia Bruschweiler-Stern and journalist Alison Freeland to paint a wonderfully evocative picture of the psychology of motherhood. At the heart of The Birth of a Mother is an arresting premise: Just as a baby develops physically in utero and after birth, so a mother is born psychologically in the many months that precede and follow the birth of her baby.The recognition of this inner transformation emerges from hundreds of interviews with new mothers and decades of clinical experience. Filled with revealing case studies and personal comments from women who have shared this experience, this book will serve as an invaluable sourcebook for new mothers, validating the often confusing emotions that accompany the development of this new identity. In addition to providing insight into the unique state of motherhood, the authors touch on related topics such as going back to work, fatherhood, adoption, and premature birth.During pregnancy, mothers-to-be talk about morning sickness and their changing bodies, and new mothers talk about their exhaustion, the benefits of nursing or bottle-feeding, and the dilemma of whether or when they should return to work. And yet, they can be strangely mute about the dramatic and often overwhelming changes going on in their inner lives. Finally, with The Birth of a Mother, these powerful feelings are eloquently put into words.
