birthdays for POEM

BENEFITING: POEM

THE STORY:

So, it's my birthday today.  And as I take a minute to think about the reality of growing older, I am appreciative of so many who have impacted my life.  My wonderful parents, husband, children, family and dear friends - and also those I have interacted with only briefly.   

I'm also eternally grateful to the women sitting in that room in Dublin over 13 years ago, who saved me.  From the depths - dark, black, endless depths - of postpartum depression.  I. Had. No. Idea.  Thank you.  I learned to be a better person, mother, citizen because of you.  The light I received, I knew, I had to extend to others. 

And so, the thousands of mothers and families I've had the privilege to talk with over these 13 years have continued to be a gift.  To see a woman in that darkness and know - truly know - that feeling, yet also wholeheartedly believe in her strength and beauty - is a gift I receive every day through my work with Perinatal Outreach & Encouragement for Moms (POEM).

In celebration and honor of all mothers - whose impact on all our lives is vast  - I ask you to donate to POEM today.  Small donations can make huge impacts.  Your gift will help POEM provide vital, evidence-based support services to mothers and families in Ohio.  Hear more about POEM in the video link on this page.

Thank you!

Tonya
