Meet Shante Jarvis

I’ve always loved kids but I never thought that I would have the patience to be a mom. On October 13th 2013 I found out that I was pregnant. I was stressed, depressed and terrified because deep down I knew mentally I was not ready.  While going through my trimesters there were two (2) questions I repeatedly asked myself: 1. How am I going to take care of this child? 2. Will I have the ability to love this child…

Meet Joanna Midolo

Meet Joanna Midolo Her thoughts on motherhood: Four weeks ago, I quit my full time job and gave birth to a beautiful little being we call Fiona Storm. They tell you your life will change, but until it happens, there's no way to fully understand. The biggest/hardest thing for me to adapt to was the change in pace. Before Fiona I lived my life in constant motion. Keeping my office job one step ahead of the boss, pursuing two new degrees in…

It made me tired all the time.   They also said it would be difficult to have another child but five years later my second son was born.

Meet Raisa Roberts

Meet Raisa Roberts   Her thoughts on motherhood: During my last trimester everything that could have gone wrong went wrong, the baby wasn’t growing as he should, I fell down, then my pressure went high so I was induced 4 weeks early. My son was 3 pounds 13.5 ounces. He was so tiny but instantly that motherly instinct kicked in and all I wanted to do was hold him and never let go. Being a mother has taught me to…

Meet Kerry Ann Thomas

Her thoughts on motherhood: Firstly, it's a gift from God and I thank him for blessing me with a son. My son is my heart, he's my everything. There is nothing I would change, one of the best decisions a woman can make is to nurture a child. Just seeing him smile, blowing me kisses and giving me hugs has captured my heart. Parenting it not an easy road but it takes a strong, dedicated, hard working individual and support…

Meet Nekesha Gordon

Her thoughts on motherhood: There is no stronger or deeper love in all the world than a mother. The love i have for my beautiful princess is beyond calculation and priceless. Being a mother is discovering super powers you didn't know you had and dealing with fear you never knew existed. That all begins when i gave birth to a beautiful bouncing baby girl in March 2003. It just doesn't end at giving birth, it is a never ending journey…

 Her thoughts on motherhood: For me being a Mother is a special gift from God. It is that connection or bond I have with my children from birth to adulthood. God has entrusted me with the responsibility to mold, love, care, teach and protect my children. It is very important as a Mother to instill the values and principles of God to my children because I am preparing them to be responsible individuals for society and the world. As a…

Meet Shaniquoi James

    Her thoughts on motherhood: When I was 18, I found out I was 8 months pregnant. At already 8 months without prior knowledge believe me when I said that was the shock of my life. I was always the smart one in the family, the one everyone had big dreams for, so, you can imagine that after it became public that I was becoming a mother heads turned. I was belittled, shamed and frowned upon. That however, did…

Meet Ruleta Camacho Thomas

Her thoughts on motherhood: My children are 10 then 3 years apart. My first experience with motherhood came at a point in my life when I wanted to do nothing else but have a baby, I bought maternity clothes months before I actually got pregnant. Well let's just say it's a good thing that I was so excited because by 7 months in, the only thing that I had to hold on to was that distant memory. That and my…
