“We’re On An Adventure”
Lucia Earle-Higgins and her son, Miro, are adventurers. The two of them arrived in the United States after crossing the Atlantic on a small hand-built wooden boat, from South Africa.

Her First Gig Is Motherhood. Her Second Is Shiatsu Massage.
Cecily Dennis is a mother, most importantly. During the days when she offers chair massage at Whole Foods, and elsewhere, Cecily brings her daughter with her to work. Her practice of integrated body work and shiatsu massage is designed to be family-oriented. By allowing her child to watch her work, Cecily’s daughter learns the mother’s way of nurturing people.
Parenting Models Are Not For Everyone
Laura Thompson-Brady speaks about the attachment parenting model. She’s discovered the importance of community support with her family life, relying on the help of neighbors, friends, extended family. In the beginning, she researched the various parenting models, but dropped the idea of doing things “by the book” after discovering her own unique ways of growing together as a family.
Humor, Honesty, And Humility
Maddy Vertenten’s family engages passionately in outdoor activities. She recognizes the beauty of “Family Time,” which often includes trips together to the seaside, walks in the forest, and gardening. She shares her thoughts on the successes of her family life: similar visions for connection. And she speaks of the power of an apology.
After ten years in the corporate world, Pamela Whittaker-Orvis first took the logical, fact-based route to child conception. It was her attempt to start a family the businesswoman way.

Fortunately for her and her children, she eventually bloomed as a mother.
