  • Abstract

    Husband and wife, Stephen and Lucy, talk about the year that has passed since they had their first Listening Project conversation in November 2012. Their baby, Rose, has been born and they have moved house. They reflect on the ups and downs of these changes and the mixture of emotions that they have provoked. Lucy describes the challenges of living with Crohn's Disease and arthritis, the impact they have on the whole family and how they will deal with them together. They discuss the surgery that Lucy is about to have and how they both feel about it. They also describe their experience of Rose's birth and how they felt when they first saw her and talk about whether they want to do it all again.
