Good day beautiful ladies! I am partnered up with my friend Crystal Grant and we’ve been running a mommy poetry page that allow moms to submit their poems so we can post them on our featured page of our website. The purpose is to allow moms to express themselves in a way that they feel safe. Soon we will add regular stories to expand the way moms can express themselves, but in the meantime, if you have a poem you would like to have up on our page, please don’t hesitate! We get a good amount of traffic. We would love to support it. You can submit the poem to our email or submit it to my email
