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…

    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…

My Multipurpose Dress – Before, During and After!

Sometimes, the baby is an oops! Sometimes, babies are planned!  We were eager to have a new addition to the family.  Little Joel was a twinkle in our eyes…..aww I like to plan everything down to the T. I like being organized, it gives me peace of mind knowing that things are in place.   Summer of 2015, hubby and I went on a much needed vacation! Shopping is always on the agenda.  When I hear vacation, I think of food,…

Meet Sherie Anne Caton

Her thoughts on motherhood:I can remember back in 2004 when I gave birth to my beautiful daughter Jahzara, I had no idea how I would have managed. I vowed from the day that the nurses placed her in my hands that I was going to give up everything and raise her the best way I could. It wasn't easy at all in the beginning, but with the help of my family and friends, I was able to be the best…

Meet Arlene Lake

Her thoughts on motherhood:Motherhood is a scary road to walk; it can make you or break you, and all our experiences are different. I remember as a little girl telling my mommy I wanted to have 32 children (clearly a little naïve at the time). Now that I am a mom (of 2) it's a journey of love, sacrifice, pride and strength. Being a mom has taught me to be even more selfless and understanding. You never stop giving and…

Meet Shannon Odlum

Her thoughts on motherhood: Motherhood is a remarkable gift. It brings out different emotions, feelings, thoughts and experiences that will change you as an individual to be the best mom there is. It’s a journey full of love, laughter, understanding, concern, wonderful memories and moments which lasts forever and cannot be forgotten. Becoming a mother 10 years ago was truly a blessing. Making my son priority instantly took its place. The journey thus far, is wonderful and life changing, especially…

Meet Hyacinth Meade

  Her thoughts on motherhood: For most of my life I was an auntie or godmother so although I had not planned to have children of my own, when I became a mother I had lots of expectations based on my experience. What a surprise! Being a mother is awesome yet challenging and exhausting. As I held my baby in my arms I was amazed by this beautiful gift God had entrusted in my care. As I watch my baby…

Meet Michelle Weekes

  Her thoughts on motherhood: Motherhood for me means love, patience, understanding, support, being their biggest cheerleader and never ever giving up on them when they make bad decisions. It's so important for me to be at every game making the most noise for their sporting activities. I take vacation for every sports day and I'm present for every basketball game. I can call myself the team mom for my sons basketball team because I am always present they all…
