“We are all modeling every single word that comes out of our mouth, and every action and so many people have an issue with those two things being very different …I try to keep those in sync as much as I possibly can.”  – Lisa Sugarman

“It’s important for me to leave some kind of imprint on the world…and I want to be a part of changing how we see motherhood & pregnancy and what it means.” – Stacey Porter

“Kindness can solve so many issues in the world today.  It can solve the “mom wars”, the feeling of judgment by other moms, bullying in our kids.” – Kate Turza

“I do my best to accept that everyone is different, we all face challenges,and that there are things we can do to help each other & the world around us.
