>Hi, all,
>My name is Angela Frederick. I am a sociology 
>professor at Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee. I’m also a blind mother.
>I’m currently conducting research on the 
>experiences of mothers with disabilities. As 
>part of this project I will be holding five 
>small group discussions with blind mothers at national convention in Orlando.
>The small group discussions will last from 1 and 
>½ to 2 hours, and I’m hoping to have 6 or 7 moms in each group.
>If you are a mother who is blind and who is 
>currently caring for at least one child under 
>the age of eighteen, you are eligible to participate.
>Here are the times:
>Monday, July 1 (Seminar Day): 10:00 a.m. and another at 3:00 p.m.
>Tuesday, July 2 (Registration and Resolutions 
>Day): 1:00 p.m. and another at 3:00 p.m.
>Thursday, July 4: 7:00 p.m.
>If you’d like to participate in one of these 
>discussions, please e-mail me at Fredericka at 
>Rhodes dot edu and let me know which session you’d like to attend.
>Please feel free to forward this announcement to 
>other blind mothers you think might be interested.
>Thanks so much, and I look forward to seeing you at convention.
