Wendy Long on Families & Children
The work closest to my heart has been taking care of my family. Like many women--and men too--I've felt the crush of being a caregiver for generations on both sides: caring for young babies and toddlers at the same time as ailing and dying parents, and trying to practice law at the same time. I understand the struggles faced by so many New Yorkers with serious disease, disabilities, and problems with health insurance.
My siblings and I nursed my mother through five years of inevitable and progressive paralysis and death from Lou Gehrig's disease. My husband and I are raising our children in NYC, with all its culture and opportunity, but where I see every day the struggles of parents trying to raise children of good character and values in a society that is often poisonous.
