The major concern of these mothers is related whit the uncertainty that surrounds the future of the child. The major concern of these mothers is related whit the uncertainty that surrounds the future of the child. The way founded to face this concern lays on the child's rehabilitation investment, witch is directly influenced by the maternal expectations, having as main features continuous learning, total availability, demand, multifunctional motherly and struggle on behalf of the child. This basic social process will grossly affect the way of living of these mothers and it shows the inner motherly struggle between strength and depression, between good and bad days.
