HOT OFF THE PRESS!!!
I'm super excited to announce that The Pride & Joy Project is featured in the May 2016 issue of O! The Oprah Magazine!!!
I've known for a few weeks now that we would be part of the Live Your Best Life Section - but nothing prepared me for the overwhelming thrill of opening up my mailbox today and finding an envelope from O! Magazine in NYC! Inside were two copies of the issue to keep - with our photo of Alia & Theresa's family right there, on page 35!!!
I worked with the photo team at O! to pick out a great portrait for the feature and decided on this snapshot from Alia & Theresa's family portrait session:
To have this kind of visibility in a mainstream publication is huge!!! I grew up watching Oprah with my Mom and my family - when I called my Mom to tell her about the feature she spent the first 3 minutes of the call screaming, and then quietly said, "Thank goodness I went to the bathroom before you called!!! OMG!" :D (If that's not the true mark of a Mom, I don't know what is!)

Thank you so much to everyone who helped make this possible! I can't tell you how humbled and proud I am to be a part of such a wonderful community of queer Mamas*, families, and new friends.
Stay tuned for more news, blog posts, and family portrait galleries! :)
With love, gratitude & so much thanks,
