What Child Is This?
Nelson, Hilde Lindemann
Hastings Center Report 2002 November-December; 32(6): 29-38
If personhood involves the construction of a narrative identity, then what are we to say of someone who is seriously ill or disabled? How can her life have any narrative when she is unable to write one? In such cases, her personal identity must be written by those who care for her. They form stories about her that, fitted to the constraints of the circumstances, hold her in personhood.
