Nearly every day something arrives out of the blue with an answer to my deepest fears and doubts.
Hi Karen, I’ve never written an author before but I so profoundly connected with Hand Wash Cold that I felt I had to write. I have gotten copies of Momma Zen for my daughter who is expecting her first child, my daughter-in-law who is mother to my grandson, and Hand Wash Cold for a dear, dear friend.
I am currently raising my second family. We have custody of our two granddaughters. They are 6 and 7 and we’ve had them since infancy. I went through a period of madly buying parenting books for advice (apparently forgetting that I already raised four pretty ok human beings). What you say about trusting yourself and just seeing how it goes struck such a chord with me – a big sigh of relief.
Thank you thank you thank you for your books!
