It was the 13th of February 1982. Our eldest daughter, a few hours old, lay in the crib at Castle Street Maternity Hospital crying and distressed. I was a mother, and I was missing, having gone to take a wash. I returned to the matron who stood over the crib, saying sternly, “Where is the mother?” It was a rude awakening to my new responsibilities! We became parents with what we learned from our mothers and the hope that we could somehow muddle through to raising responsible adults.

Fast forward thirty plus years, and our three daughters are now mothers. Every detail of how to help babies feed, sleep and eat is carefully researched. Books, blogs, Instagram, and parenting groups are mined for information and experience on how best to navigate each phase of their children’s development. The younger generations are blessed to have a lot of helpful information, and sometimes overwhelmed with too much of it!

But in the midst of it all, whether parenting by our instincts or with all the information out there, we share some common dreams – to see our children grow up to be healthy, happy and responsible adults. We want to have meaningful relationships with them and we want them to be able to love and care for others. We want them to love God and walk in His ways.
