This moves me powerfully. I know that it will move you as well, particularly if you have been the caretaker of a child with a disability for more than ten years. It is a clip from a documentary, not yet completed, being made by poet Heather McHugh and filmmaker Adam Larsen, "celebrating and giving voice to one of the most 'under-sung' of human communities: long-term, full-time caregivers of disabled family members."

Read more about it here.


  1. a project that will enlighten many. I look forward to its release.

  2. Wow. That clip is so very powerful and so necessary.

  3. oh man, im crying. cant wait for this documentary to come out and pray it gets the attention it deserves.

  4. Thank you for sharing this! I had not heard about it. I had to stop watching when the woman started talking about how people like to support acute interventions, but no one wants to support families where the child has a chronic, unchanging condition. So true. No one wants to see our kids. Only the "successes." Thanks again!
