Our Spring 2017 Mom to Mom mentorship program ended recently and what an amazing journey it was! We had the joy of loving and serving twelve moms and eight babies over the course of ten weeks. Each week we engaged a new topic, and clients wrote a specific goal to work on with the support of their mentor mom. This team of eight mentor moms encountered many joys as well as challenges ‘doing life’ with their clients. During the ten weeks, two clients gave birth and two clients had their babies apprehended. These moms continued to come out and received unconditional love and support from the group and from their mentor. We took a class ‘field trip’ to the Children’s Needs Distribution Centre and moms filled garbage bags with clothing, books and toys for their kids. We also cooked and ate a delicious meal together. Our final class was filled with many tears as mentor moms each presented their client with a handmade blanket (donated to the centre) and the most beautiful affirming message of hope and love.
Thank you for your support. It is a joy to serve the moms in our community and watch them grow as parents and as individuals.
