“[The] most exciting [thing about being a new mom]—a new and unique kind of love has come into my life, glorious and joyful and encompassing and full of discovery. Most terrifying—the anxiety-filled desire to protect her from everything and the terror-filled sense that I cannot.”

-Nigerian-based author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie on the most exciting and terrifying aspects of new motherhood, The Guardian, 2016.

Thank you for including a woman of color. I enjoy reading Mother, but stopped recently because of the lack of diversity. Please include more diverse moms and families.
