About Lemur Mom
Megan Dolan has the distinct feeling she's not the right mom. As she navigates support groups, child psychologists, and playdates trying to help her son communicate, she makes countless wrong turns along the way.
This hilarious and touching one person show explores the power of resilience, kindness, and the value of showing up. Megan forges a path from believing she's the wrong mom to knowing she's the only mom for her unique and gifted son.
