Starting Local Care Midwifery

In 1999, my family and I moved to New York from Carbondale, Colorado. We moved here for my first job as a midwife. We moved here with my job contract, a lot of hope, and more than just a few prayers. We drove a U-Haul filled with all our belongings and a station wagon filled with our three kids. We drove across mountains, plains and the great Mississippi. Our finances were tight (our budget could handle an occasional treat at Friendly's, not gallons of organic milk). This move was a stretch for all of us, a leap of faith as a family to support my dream of being a midwife.

Quilts

Quilts are amazing things: they are made of fabric that together warm you more than the separate layers ever would. A handmade quilt? Well, it warms the soul as well as the body. This week, I was presented with a very special quilt and now my body, heart and soul are very warm and cozy indeed.
