Summary
Jessica Moxham thought she was prepared for the experience of motherhood. Armed with advice from friends & family, parenting books & antenatal classes, she felt ready. But after giving birth, she found herself facing a different, more uncertain reality. Her son, Ben, was fighting to stay alive. When Jessica could finally take him home from hospital, the challenges were far from over. In this hopeful memoir, Jessica shares her journey in raising Ben, whose life-altering disability means he will never be able to move or communicate without assistance. Jessica has to learn how to feed Ben when he can't eat, wrestle with red tape to secure his education & defend his basic rights in the face of discrimination. As Ben begins to thrive, Jessica finds that caring for a child with unique needs is teaching her universal lessons about resilience, appreciating difference & doing things your own way
