@virmaior:I am not a native speaker either but although it might not be "good Japanese", I think it works. I will give my thoughts under your new question.

comment This mother doesn't know her own child?
@DaveMG: Some dictionaries might even give a definition of には(?) but the literal meaning of the sentence does not change by having/not having は, just the emphasis. The は makes a contrast between the writer as a child and as an adult and, as in other questions where function of は is discussed, places an emphasis on what comes after it. (Not sure if this helps but when I read the sentence I insert a pause after the は.)

comment Difference between the words for “feeling”
感情 is used for emotions eg 感情的=emotional, 感情を込めて謝りました=He apologized with real feeling. 感覚 is used for sense eg 金銭感覚= sense for the value of money.

comment How can I use できない and しまう? I'd like to apologize for not being able to do something
You could say xyzができなくてすみません(でした). As you suggest I think しまう would be used to apologise for something you did rather than did not do (~してしまってすみませんでした)
