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 I wanted to return to work a year after May’s birth, it should have been straight-forward. It was anything but. Finding childcare was a nightmare.
