Margaret Mohrmann has devoted most of her professional life to caring for children, and in Attending Children she shares the remarkable education those children and their families have given her. Her narratives are both painful and hopeful, tragic and funny, full of remarkable characters and sometimes bizarre families. Mohrmann has sifted through her 30 years as a pediatrician, and with poignancy, humor, and uncompromising honesty, she shares her sometimes stumbling but always deeply caring journey through a land where, sometimes, small hands have to be let go too soon. She introduces us to not only the physical challenges she, her colleagues, and her patients encounter, but the spiritual ones as well. Attending Children is a unique experience as Mohrmann takes the listener on a doctor's rounds over many years to meet the faces and the struggles, the heartaches and the joys of being a pediatrician. In the case of Margaret Mohrmann and her patients, no one could ask for better teachers.

This was a very interesting book and I would highly recommend. Medical documentaries can be dull and dry or they can grab your attention and keep you there. This grabbed my attention and I will have to see if Margaret E. Mohrmann MD has other audiobooks available from Audible. I'm not sure if I received this through AudioBookBoom or not but either way is was worth it... I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
