Whispering to Babies
Whispering to Babies: a Womb to Tomb Memoir is, on one level, about Dwight L. Wilson's experiences as a volunteer baby-holder at the Pediatric Cardiac Ward at C.S. Mott Children's Hospital in Ann Arbor, Michigan. It is also a reflection and meditation upon his own life, refracted through the lens of caring for babies and grounded in a deep well of compassion and care.
