Beautiful, moving, heart wrenching. As a mother of 6 (4 daughters, 2 sons)and grandmother of 22 (13 granddaughters, 9 grandsons)each of these stories touched me in some very personal way. Thanks for opening your hearts and sharing such personal stories in a way that was both respectful and affirming of the bonds between mothers and their children.

Well written and composed collection of stories. The mother/daughter relationship can be complex as the women here do an excellent job of capturing.
