Hi, I'm Maggie. I have a long history with Mothering from submitting photos and letters to the original print magazine to attending conferences where Peggy and other Mothering staff were speaking.
I'm a Mothering reader starting in about 1986, when my first child was born. I subscribed and bought as many back issues as possible. Long before the internet I remember waiting for each issue to arrive.
I'm the mother of three girls and am a Board Certified Lactation Consultant and love talking to other mothers. I was a LLL leader for more than 20 years and went to many conferences, some of which Peggy gave sessions which I attended.
It's nice to see Mothering online.

Thanks, Adina. I'm probably old enough to be the mother of some of the moms here now. I remember many years ago how my older Mothering friends and LLL friends were such a positive influence on me, mentoring me through my early years of parenting. As I work with and LOVE new moms and babies and want to talk to people about teens, I found a thread here by accident and thought, "Mothering! That sounds wonderful."
Thank you all for the warm welcome.
