What a magical night last Friday was as 11 ladies took Memorial Opera House stage to tell their hilarious, heart-breaking and heart-warming stories about motherhood. We had some share about being a mom and others about their own moms, stories of birth and of adoption, there were stories of pain and of hope. I’m so grateful to each reader for being willing to stand in front of hundreds of people and give their motherhood stories a microphone.
This summer, the 11 stories shared in NWI will join the readers in all other 38 cities across the country in releasing their stories worldwide as every video will be uploaded to our LTYM YouTube channel! I’ll let you know here when the videos are available or you can follow along on our national Listen To Your Mother Facebook page!
Thank you to each and every audience member that made this night so special. We could hear you laughing, crying & gasping with us. We saw your head nodding and your leaning over to whisper to a loved one when something really resonated with you. We felt your love as you held space with our stories. Thank you.
“I brought my two sisters with… we laughed, we cried, we reminisced. Thanks for bringing something worthwhile to the community.” – Deanna Gallardo, NWI audience member
