Not Just A Mother is a podcast encouraging all women from single to motherhood to live a life beyond the goal of only being a mom. Motherhood is a beautiful thing but it is also an identity that women become stuck in. This podcast gives thoughtful tools on how to live unstuck from that mindset and to become and live fully alive as the women we are created to be.

Waiting for an Adoption
We are all in our own way waiting to be adopted into some type of family, whether that's our family at work, in the gym or the military. It's part of our human nature to find and identify with a group to be a part of. This need weighs on us even more though when the family you so despartely seek is your own parent. In this week's episode in our adoption series, we hear from Stefani and her emotional journey to find that family.
This week begins our 3 part series on adoption. Each week you’ll hear from three remarkable women and their stories on adoption. Joining Catherine on this episode is Danielle Self. She shares with us her perspective on adoption, including how it changed her and made her into the incredible woman she is today.
Think of the strongest woman you know, and multiply that by 10. Do that and you’ll get Victoria Mugo, a quadruple amputee, hardworking woman and mother who was about to meet her maker, only to have the strength of her faith and the love of family save her. This is her story and you don't want to miss it!
The focus on strong women continues as Catherine is joined this week by Ayesha Chidolue, a licensed attorney practicing immigration and intellectual property law. In this episode Ayesha and Catherine discuss the joys and challenges of working in the legal system to change people’s lives for the better.
