This blog was born when my daughter was born.
I have an Honours English degree and an Honours diploma in Journalism. I have been published in many places and even won a national award for journalism. As a writer, I got to meet many amazing people and had the privilege of recording and sharing their stories.
But I quit journalism because there wasn’t enough of the human connection.
So I taught.
I taught children from all over the world. I taught children aged 18 months to children aged 18 years. I became a Montessori teacher and focused on primarily 3-6 year olds. I LOVED it.
But then it came time for me to make my own child, and everything I’ve ever done started to make sense.
So this blog was born, because now it is me who has a story to tell.
It’s a story about parenting, birth, labor, delivery, miscarriage, abortion, mental illness, family, strength, hope, love, joy and everything in between.
My goal with this blog is to reach through your screen and warm your heart. To make you laugh, to make you cry. To help you feel supported in your darkest hours. To build a bridge across the world that connects other like-minded people.
