Abstract

The purpose of this study was to explore the mothering experiences of Indonesian women married to Taiwanese and living in Taiwan. Women with children aged from three to twelve years old were qualified to participate and we used snowballing to recruit participants. A total of 21 mothers agreed to participate in semi-structured interviews, the contents of which were recorded and immediately transcribed following each session. All 21 mothers completed their interviews, in which two common themes appeared. These were: (1) reflection: searching for self-worth through the mothering role and (2) projection: spending all of the " self” for their children. The results of this study provide valuable information necessary to understand the experience of Indonesian mothers in Taiwan.
