Stacie Lewis’ experience raising hell…
... erm, raising a little girl with severe brain damage. The blog began in 2009 when May was 4 1/2 months old.
Currently, May enjoys bouncing and the dulcet tones of dub step.

When May was assigned to her team, I saw our relationship as adversarial. Maybe that is only natural. Before she was born, I anticipated fudging my way through most of her first months, making mistakes and learning, just like other parents.
