I wanted to take a moment to highlight a mother whom I personally admire, Lisa Leonard.
Lisa started her jewelry company, Lisa Leonard Designs, when her first son, was born.
Lisa and her husband have two beautiful children. Their oldest, David, was born with a rare condition, and it is amazing to see the warrior inside of each mother. The way she handled innocence and ignorance in this story brought tears to my eyes.… Keep Reading!!!
“You don’t choose your family. They are God’s gift to you, as you are to them.”
The Thanksgiving that we all know and love is actually a 19th century creation. By the early twentieth century it was really established as what it is – a family gathering to celebrate blessings. The true history of Thanksgiving is a controversial topic in certain circles. Some believe that the holiday is actually disrespectful to the natives of our land because colonists ended up committing mass genocide and dehumanizing native cultures.
I personally understand that it would feel belittling … Keep Reading!!!
Dr. Jay Gordon is a vegetarian that encourages a vegan/vegetarian lifestyle. I am more of an omnivore, but I’ve learned so much from him about child nutrition and getting kids excited about eating healthy foods that I want to share some of it with you.
Teach her that fruit is the sweet.
A berry tastes incredibly sweet unless you have just eaten an Oreo cookie. Help your child appreciate the sweetness of fruit by limiting artificial sweets including … Keep Reading!!!
In many cases you can breastfeed your NICU baby. Certainly, pump your breastmilk until baby is able to latch. In some cases mom (or dad) can hold baby on her chest. For example, in cases of jaundice, place a bili-blanket underneath your baby on your chest and shine lights on both mom and baby. You may need to advocate with your doctors or nurses in order to be able to do this. Having regular consultations with a lactation consultant may … Keep Reading!!!
I love this photo of our group in Ethiopia back in September.
We had spent the day over with Sister Donna and it was the last day our entire group was all together (several left the following day).
The photo itself shows people from all walks of life. Having been there to see the differences in beliefs and personalities made it even more special. We looked different, had different backgrounds and life experiences, and yet here we all were together … Keep Reading!!!
The craziness in our house has been ramped up recently.
The holiday season means a lot of fun, but a ton of traveling for us. We are so excited to spend time with both sides of our families.
Once the holidays are over, we have a couple of weeks of rest before we leave on a trip to South Africa.
It is going to be a pretty special trip.
I was originally in contact with … Keep Reading!!!
When doing keyword searches for Fayye Foundation my team discovered this: Space/Gods: A Mother and Child Reunion
Apparently, we are all a part of a conspiracy theory. Not just the cover, which I probably would not have taken as a conspiracy about me or Aram- but then it became personal (in an awesome way) when he started comparing Fayye Foundation to the Fringe Division!
For me, all of the excitement leading up to Christmas Day is what I love the most.
First, we have Halloween, which, for us, ends up being more about buying pumpkins and dressing up than anything else. It’s a costume party to kick off the season: fun.

These were my cats in college.
That would be “extended adoptive breastfeeding” going on. It was comforting to the younger one, so the older one put up with it. Very sweet and definitely funny. The little one weaned after a few months of doing this.… Keep Reading!!!
To put things into perspective I want to first start by showing you a photo of what kind of ignorance and hate awaited kindergarten student Ruby Bridges at school:
Ruby was the first black student at the formerly all white public school. Her family was taking a stand.
