This book began as a public radio program entitled "Hardship into Hope: The Rewards of Caregiving." The program consisted of a series of interviews with family caregivers---some well known, some not so well-known, but all with inspiring stories to share. A copy of this program, recorded on a CD, has been attached to the inside back cover of this book.
After that program aired nationally, many listeners urged producer Connie Goldman to write a book based on the radio program. Goldman then began to collect additional conversations that put into words the special gifts of caregiving. This book is the result of her labor: an informative and inspirational anthology showing how the hardship of caregiving can be transformed into an experience of hope and healing.From the Author:
In collecting the interviews for this book, I talked with spouses who were watching their mates deteriorate physically and mentally, and I had conversations with many middle-aged children caring for their aging parents. I spoke with parents of children who required lifelong special care, and with people whose partners were dying of AIDS. And while sadness, uncertainty, and desperation were common threads weaving through their stories, each of them had also learned something deeply meaningful and profoundly spiritual about themselves in the process. It is my hope that their stories have the potential to bring similar healing to the more than 25 other million Americans currently caring for an ill, aging, or disabled loved one.
