Having gone through the struggles of being a mom abroad, I decided to create a platform for fellow immigrant mothers who'd like to raise a community of support together.
We experience maternity so differently from the intimate spaces of our bodies and minds, it feels disingenuous to strike comparisons and place value judgments. Any woman who experiences the vulnerability of carrying a child in her body -or heart- and bringing it earthside is heroic in my estimation. Loss moms, adoptive moms, cesarean birth mothers, any mother…We all open. We all tear, somewhere (body, heart, soul). We all both wildly embrace and struggle to embrace these experiences. It all takes courage and that courage is always worth celebrating.
