Hello Everyone! I recently joined the site and noticed African Americans did not have a circle of their own to assemble and discuss motherhood and our unique obstacles in parenthood. So I created this circle so we could celebrate motherhood, share experiences, and collectively help one another in our common purpose.

I welcome all the mothers to our circle and look forward to reading your prospective, issues, and information relating to motherhood. Thank you for joining the circle.

Sarah

Hello,

My nam eis Kim and I would like to thank you for starting a circle for us and letting us know that we are welcomed!! I am also on the CafeMom.com site and noticed that there wasn't a club for African American Authors, so I started one called, "African American Literature," if anyone is interested you can go check it out. I'm kind of having a hard time getting people to participate but I won't give up and again, Thank You!

Hello all,
My name is Crystal, I'm new to this site and i'm interested to see if I can meet some real down to earth women like myself! I have two kids Jacob, 6 and Morgan, 3. I work part time during the school year and I enjoy spending as much time with my little ones as possible! I live out here in Santa Clarita, CA and I don't get to interact with other AA moms that often since there is not as many of us out here! : / But I'm looking forward to meeting some great moms in the group!

Thanks so much for creating this circle Sarah.  My name is Latisha and I have a beautiful 13 month old son Edwin.  It's good to know that I have a group of women to go to for help and support when I need it.  Not trying to push my beliefs on anyone but I whispered a prayer for "us" - Asking God to continue to give up the strength, wisdom and support we need in order to be the best Moms we can be!





Hi Latisha. I'm Renita; thanks for the prayer. My aim is to raise my children Mariah, Amirah and Shykhym to be proud African Americans and achieve what god wants them to be :)

Quoting Damali:

My name is Damali. I have two beautiful daughters, Isis and Nefertiti. Thank you for creating this circle. I plan to add my wisdom to this site and also gain a lot of insight from other mothers. Sisterhood has definitely been lost in our community, but it's time to get it back. Keep your heads up ladies! Peace.


Hi Damali. My name is Renita and I have two daughters Mariah and Amirah and a step-son Shykhym. I agree with you we need Sisterhood in our communities instead of self hate and trying to bring each other down. I look forward to meeting some Sista's on this site.

My name is Zee. I have a 4 year old daughter and a 10 month old son. My husband and I both work full-time. We pretty much take the "tag team" approach to parenting our children and it seems to be working out pretty well. I have to say I am very pleased to have a "circle" where other moms can share their experiences. I look forward to getting to know everyone.

Nice to meet you Candice. I appreciate the kind words and I hope our circle becomes a great source of information for the experienced mom to the not so experienced mom. After all motherhood does not come with a handbook. lol

[deleted account]

My name is Candice and I have one son, Anthony who is 9 months old (born Feb 19 2008). We live in Kansas and I work full time as a nurse.
Thanks for being proactive Sarah! Its definitely a new experience being mom and being an AA woman greatly affects how I go about parenting!
