I am extremely priviledged to have two pieces in MetroFamily Magazine this month.
I'm proud of both of them, but writing one of them really touched my heart: Mothers Don't Always Start at the Maternity Ward can be read here http://www.metrofamilymagazine.com/mothers-dont-always-start-at-the-maternity-ward It's the story of Rose Harper, a truly amazing person. She and her late husband were foster parents for two dozen children over the years. That's a picture of Rose on the left.
The Harpers also started Citizens Caring for Children, a nonprofit organization that provides support for children in foster care. For more information about what they do, check out their website http://www.citizenscaringforchildren.org/ They are the real deal and worthy of your support.
I'm optimistic about writing about Rose and CCC again for other magazines - maybe national magazines. I love the opportunity to write stories that make a difference and this one definitely falls into that category. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
