Every mom has a story. By sharing our stories we give support to each other, permission to stumble and an opportunity to connect. If your writing style and story is accepting (no judgment), candid, heartfelt and if your story takes the topic to heart in a unique way, we want to hear from you.

Our mission is to create connections and the content we choose reflects this goal. No how-to, or political stories are accepted. We don’t lean left or right, just on each other.
