Last fall, Jessica Spradlin and her husband Ronnie found out they were pregnant. They had been hoping for a baby, and when the pregnancy test read “positive,” they were thrilled. At their 12 week appointment, they found out they were having a little boy. They decided to name him Kailor Dean. “Kailor means “little warrior,” […]
Mother’s Day is just around the corner—the day we remember our moms, shower them with flowers, cards, gifts and hugs—and show them some well-deserved love. But on this day each year, there are many moms who are forgotten. These are the birth moms who have placed their children for adoption, but who are mothers nonetheless. […]
At 2:30 am, on a Friday night in June, I woke up from my sleep. My stomach was tight, and uncomfortable, and I felt nauseous. I was 21 years old, in an unplanned college pregnancy, and completely unsure of what to expect in childbirth. It was also still three weeks before my due date, so […]
Eight-year-old chess champion Tantioluxa Adewumi has recently gained national attention. According to the New York Times, Tani and his family sought asylum in the U.S. in 2017, fleeing attacks on Christians by the terrorist group, Boko Haram.

For Spenser and Jessica Trinkle, their baby, Parker, is a miracle. Last fall, expectant mother Jessica Trinkle went in for her routine OB exam and ultrasound check-up. This was her second child, and she was about halfway along in her pregnancy, when something alarming showed up on the scan. Her doctor explained that a sac […]

After spending a lot of time weighing price vs. safety and comfort, we chose the Graco 4Ever All-in-1 Convertible Car Seat and we are SO happy with it. Prior to this seat, my toddler really disliked riding in her infant car seat, but she actually likes climbing into this one! We also love knowing that it’s super safe and sturdy — in fact, Consumer Reports ranked the Graco 4Ever Car Seat as one of the “Best All-in-One Car Seats” for safety in crash protection.
I love a good home decor magazine. There’s a stack of Better Homes and Gardens on my living room side table. They’re great for ideas and inspiration…and I’ll be honest, they’re relaxing to browse through. It’s why they’re in every doctor’s office. The pretty window boxes with actually thriving (not half-dead) flowers, shining floors, gleaming […]
Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve had my life planned out. I would go to college and study pre-law, and then head off to law school. I’d travel the world and then settle into a sophisticated career at a law firm. And I’d live in a gorgeous 27-story apartment building downtown Chicago, where […]
