Happy Birthday Mom

Happy Birthday Mom

This week we are celebrating our mom's birthday.  She was born to immigrant parents in Ottawa, Canada and speaks both English and Portuguese and was fluent in French as a child (she claims that English is her 3rd language when she misunderstands or pronounces things wrong). To learn more about her mom, our Vovo, read our last blog here. Fun fact: each of us has her maiden name, Medina, as our middle name. 

 One of her greatest callings is being a mom. She's a bio mom to 7, adoptive mom to 1, foster mom to countless, and surrogate mom to all (humans and animals alike). She is rarely found with a child or two close by to her and makes functioning in chaos seem effortless. She's full of smiles, belly laughs, warm hugs, and wise advice. 

 Our mom has been married to our dad, David, for 32 years and in love with him since they were teenagers. Together they have devoted themselves to leading godly lives and set great examples for us kids. Seeing our parents have such a long lasting and strong marriage gives us hope for our families. To learn more about their love story, read our blog here.

 In her "free time", she works alongside middle daughter, Rachyl and oldest daughter, Jaklyn, at Rachyl's Goat Milk Soap. She is always in the middle of a project and is full of ideas. She doesn't take herself too seriously, which is a good thing when you're working with two daughters! 

 Join us in wishing the world's best mom a very happy birthday on social media or at the Scituate Farmer's Market this Saturday from 9am-12pm!
