In this book, disabled parents share their experiences of the issues surrounding their decision to have and raise children. It is a candid account of positive and negative aspects of the subject and details the obstacles many of these parents face and overcome - disapproval from others, dealing with physical restriction and, above all, society's inability to recognize the role of disabled people as carers when they are so tightly pigeon-holed as dependants. This is not 'another book about heroines' but a practical and positive insight into disabled parenting that will be invaluable to those working or studying within the health and social services profession and to people with disabilities who are interested in the subject.
