For nearly all of us, there is a moment in our lives when the roles are reversed between our parents and ourselves.  In that moment, we transform from being the child to the caretaker.

As a journalist for Elle, Sophie Fontanel is a slave to fashion, invited to all the glamorous parties and has a blast in the process.  After years of carefree fun, her time has come…

Sophie has just become her mother’s caretaker and describes what the experience has been like for her, an experience that many can relate to.  She embraces this emotionally challenging phase and puts it into her unique words.

Her story is filled with anecdotes that are both humorous and heartbreaking.  It’s painful for children to watch their parents’ health decline, at no matter what age, but it’s a natural order of events.

It’s natural to be moved, saddened, frustrated, concerned…to feel so many emotions.  Sophie Fontanel’s work reminds us that we are not alone in experiencing this transformation.  It is human and though it may not be easy…we all need to grow up some time.
