Atlanta Parent is a great magazine whose mission is to “share the stories that affect Atlanta families.” In their August 2010 issue, staff writer Melanie Wagner gathered together an expert panel to answer the questions of parents who have children with special needs.
Among this panel was Denise Urgent, Georgia Community Support and Solutions’ respite manager. The question asked of the panel was, “What is respite care? Why should I consider this for my child and me?” You can read Denise’s response at Atlanta Parent: August 2010 Just Kids.
In addition to reading Ms. Urgent’s answer to the question, I recommend Tidbits, written by Shifrah Combiths, a freelance writer from San Francisco who recently had her first child. Once again, although not directly related to GCSS, Ms. Combiths’ blog provides some thought-provoking stories about motherhood and family life that many parents can surely relate to.
