Meet Heather

Heather is a mom and stepmom of three kids, ages 12 to 20. Through her life, Heather has successfully risen through many challenges and transitions. Whether it be parental abandonment, alcoholism in the family, loss, divorce, picking up and starting anew many times over and now through adventures in her own parenting/stepparenting, she will share with you everything she has learned and in ways you’ll feel immediately connected to.

In her research, she found that there really wasn’t anyone out there talking specifically about what you go through inside, watching your child grow up and need you less, how heart wrenching it can be. How your whole sense of identity staggers and what you can do to truly be happy and strong for yourself. As a bonus, the child wins and your relationship thrives. Instead, there are plenty of blogs on parenting and being a new mom, the struggles of parenting a teenager, etc. but nothing devoted to the emotional wellbeing of us as mothers. When Heather began to struggle in big ways as her own son entered this life stage as a tween/teen, she realized there was a real need to write about it, talk about it, speak and connect about it.
