dc.description.abstract While the essay folds together to focus on an individual experience or insight, it communicates the writer's worldview to the reader by subtly illustrating a universal human moment, thus opening up to a broader relevance. As the writer speaks to the world about an event, readers may gain new insights applicable within their own lives, or join the author in a moment of happiness, hope, or laughter. From the writings of Montaigne to the more modem works of E.B. White and Virginia Woolf, the essay has communicated a reality that involves a member of the human race. I've used the example of my predecessors to guide the creative process of this project. This collection of personal essays highlights my experience as the mother of a micropreemie learning to embrace the life events I cannot control and become an advocate for my son. The form I've developed illustrates a move from a superficial awareness to a deeper understanding of the human condition without leaving readers exhausted, horrified, or overly sympathetic.--page 1. en
