This Is Me: A Chapter In My Story

I have always loved children. As a kid, I dreamed of having a big family of my own. My best friend and I had future plans to start our own preschool. And my husband and I spent the early years of our marriage living abroad to teach at a bilingual school and love on orphaned children […]

The role of mother is one of the most important responsibilities a woman can have, and that’s why I encourage your to do a Mommy Review.
