The merry month of May ushers in warmer days, inspiring day dreams and plans for the summer days to come. This month’s “Celebrating Parenthood” issue puts a spotlight on local parents who share the story of their pathway to family through adoption. As one mother notes, “Adoption is not for everyone, but if you have space in your heart and space in your home, then fostering and adopting are amazing ways that you can give back and build your family.” We also share an inspiring and deeply personal essay by a mother reflecting on how her parenting and personhood altered “in the face of an insecurity so elemental as survival” as she beat the odds of a terminal cancer diagnosis.
Now for the fun part! Tucked inside our May issue you’ll find our annual Summer Family Adventure Guide, which is chock-full of terrific ideas for delightful — even delicious! — warm-weather outings, both close to home and a bit farther afield. Get to plannin’!
