Spring Newsletter – From the Heart

OPEN THE SPRING NEWSLETTER OPEN THE NEWSLETTER ARCHIVE I thought parenting would be easy. Learning about young children and teaching in the field of Early Childhood Education was my passion. The key to parenting was to provide unconditional love, and a sense of safety, with structure and limits–and then of course, I would have happy and healthy children. The reality of parenting humbled me. The first big challenge was my infant daughter’s daily crying spells. Hazel would begin crying in the early evening and wouldn’t stop for several hours. I didn’t understand why nursing, or rocking, or singing, or swaddling,…

Fall Newsletter – From the Heart

OPEN THE FALL NEWSLETTER OPEN THE NEWSLETTER ARCHIVE When I was in second grade, my family went through a hard year financially. We moved across the country and we were surviving on a school bus driver’s income.

Mother’s Day 2020

OPEN MS. LA PORTE’S MOTHER’S DAY MESSAGE OPEN THE NEWSLETTER ARCHIVE I had the extreme good fortune to grow up knowing my three great grandmothers, two grandmothers and mother. All six were strong women who put their families first and believed in the power of love and prayer. They also all modeled the importance of being compassionate to everyone at all times, with no exceptions. As time passed, I acquired three other mothers – my husband’s mother, my best friend’s mother and another best friend’s older sister. They too were all cut from the same “mother mold.” My mom was…
