Description

Stress, burden, and sorrow are not surprising responses for mothers of children who acquire life-altering disabilities. What is largely unforeseen is how maternal caregivers transform in positive ways through trauma and diversity. This article offers first person accounts from mothers about elements of posttraumatic growth that unexpectedly emerged and coexisted with the rigors and emotional strains of raising their newly physically challenged children. Also noted is the unanticipated potential for growth that occurs in the process of conducting “insider” research.
