All mothers hear this: "Tell me a story." The greatest stories they have to share are the ones about being mothers.
Mothers have lessons to share with their children, their friends, spouses and even strangers. This collection of short stories is told from the viewpoint of more than a dozen different mothers from all backgrounds: they were born in different countries, with different traditions, different paths to motherhood, and different advice. The common theme they all share is their motherhood. The stories include:
-Birthing from the Heart
, the adoption memory of Alison Rand;
-A Love Letter to My Daughter
about becoming a mother for the first time, by Brita Moe;
-All Little Ants Need Their Mother
, about Valerie Nifora's Greek immigrant mother and a world of possibilities;
-Creando Una Casa
, Nancy Brooker's memories of the food and smells of her Italian mother's home;
, where a medical diagnosis gifted Cori Edwards with her mother's stories of growing up;
-Motherhood Awakens Divine Power, Intuition and Consciousness
, where Whitney Mullings transforms her family from the rigor of her Chinese roots to something that nurtures them all; and more.
The advice of these authors works for new moms and mothers ready to share their memories alike; they cover topics like adoption, blended families, immigration stories, and post-partum depression. The stories inside touch on acceptance, worthiness, struggle, triumph, love, family and peace. Whether you are a mother yourself or have a strong bond with your own mother, the memories within this collection will resonate with you and inspire you.
