The Four Walls of My Freedom: Lessons I’ve Learned from a Life of Caregiving

In this family memoir, author Donna Thomson writes about raising a son with cerebral palsy. As a former actor, director and teacher, she experienced major life changes after her son’s birth. She now spends most of her time as his caregiver, with a second career as a disability activist, author and consultant. Here, Thomson provides vivid descriptions of how she and her family work together in taking care of her son. The book provokes thoughts about how people with disabilities contribute to society, the importance of giving and receiving care, and the definition of a good life.
