March of Dimes

Kevin and I know all too well how blessed we are to have brought Oaklee into the world in the twenty-first century. Even 25 years earlier, things would have gone so differently. The research of organizations like March of Dimes is monumental in the care of preemies like Oaklee.¬†Please consider making a contribution towards that research. No parent deserves to lose a child they’ve barely had. While we are incredibly lucky to have Oaklee with us today, there are thousands of parents every year who cannot say the same. Let’s change that together.¬†

Book Review – A Woman is No Man

A Woman is No Man is comprised of the stories of three generations of Palestinian women and their roles in their families. Spanning the 1970s to the early 2000s, ocean crossings from the Middle East to the U.S., and cultural shifts that come with time, with each new generation, each woman faces new challenges, but each is also still a woman in Palestinian culture.
