Who is Raising Nashville?
I am a mom. A mama. Without giving away my actual age I will share that I was considered of “advanced maternal age” when I got pregnant with Littlest. The birth of my child and my journey into motherhood has undoubtedly shaped my values, my vision for the future and my passions. Littlest was due on my birthday but didn’t start their journey Earthside until the Women’s March began on Saturday January 21, 2017. I believe that the energy of the millions of women who united and raised their voices loudly in protest of the 2016 election sustained my labor and the birth of this tiny new human into the world. I remembered this when I finally emerged out of the haze and heavy weight of the fourth trimester and the knowledge that I wasn’t alone has driven me day in and day out to build a better tomorrow for my child and their peers.
