This week, May 3 - 7, we recognize Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week. How timely, with Mother's Day being this Sunday, May 9th. While many mothers will celebrate this day with their loved ones, others will experience grief and pain.
Ramadan not only serves as a time to reflect with relatives and friends, but to also enjoy delicious meals together.

Women who are dear friends of mine, for whom my heart breaks, struggle with infertility or loss. But a rainbow is also a bridge to a promise that hope is just over the arc.
