The September 2016 SuperMommy Digest

The September 2016 SuperMommy Digest


I’m happy to say, in addition to my usual blogging and freelancing, I’ve accepted a job writing for a nonprofit that works to end human trafficking. So far, it hasn’t slowed down my output by a lot, and I hope that soon, I’ll be able to share all the amazing work we’re doing to stop the exploitation with all of you!
