All moms are special, but some are extraordinary.
One mom, the amazing Heidi Hess Saxton, is certainly above average. She is a very busy Catholic mom, writer, blogger, editor of Canticle Magazine and author of Behold Your Mother: A Bouquet of Love to Mary from Her Children.. (Bezalel, 2008.)
Her latest project is the new blog the Extraordinary Mom's Network.
Heidi defines "extraordinary moms" this way:
There are three main types of EMs: Those who are extraordinary in their calling — especially adoptive and foster mothers as well as step-mothers and others raising children to whom they did not give birth; those who are extraordinary in life’s challenges — those facing infertility and other reproductive issues, domestic violence survivors, and mothers of large families; and those who are mothers of extraordinary children — those with physical or emotional problems, or with chronic or terminal illnesses.
As a mom of seven children, one of them a child with serious challenges who left this world at an early age, I fit two of those categories. But the truth is ALL moms will find something of interest here.
Heidi kicks things off with a carnival this week. Stop by for a visit!
