Nonfiction Editor’s Note

Mothers and motherhood are the subject of this issue’s nonfiction stories. Though we’d like to take credit for creating the theme, we can’t. The truth is that these stories moved us, so we selected them. Another way of saying it is that they chose each other. These stories reveal the incredible demands and tremendous rewards of motherhood. They show us the joy, fear, heartache, hope, and redemptive power of the deepest and most complex human bond—the one between mother and child. We’d like to thank the authors for summoning the courage to tell their stories—and for being great moms.
