Diverse perspectives

I absolutely love hearing the different perspectives on parenting and raising global citizens from mothers around the globe. MaryGrace has done a great job of finding mothers from literally across the globe. I especially love the recent article for the 4th of July that included the perpective of a Dominican mama raising kiddos that identify as American. I can resonate with raising third culture kids.
