Parallel Truth

Parallel Truth


Poetry book, by Babs Ratcliffe. The story of Babs pregnancy and Angie up to age 5 years.

I began writing these poems when Angie was a baby. By the time she was due to start school they had joined together in a sort of story.

It has been a bumpier ride than I expected!

The journey is far from complete, and there is a great deal of uncertainty about where it will eventually end up. It has been a steep learning curve with a child who has had many unexpected additional needs.

I hope that by sharing my observations and personal experience you will gain some insight and know that you are not alone.

Please note this book is not a suitable read for children.
