Motherhood stories shared for charity

An essay I wrote on how motherhood doesn't always feel as wonderful as you might have expected before having children recently was selected to be published in a book, Beyond the Diaper Bag. All of the proceeds from the book go to The Mommies Network, a national non-profit charity.

Here's a description of the book from the book seller: Beyond the Diaper Bag, the second book in the Beyond Books series, "is full of humorous mishaps, inspirational stories and invaluable tips from real moms. Beyond the Diaper Bag covers all topics from pregnancy through kindergarten. We are proud to donate 100% of the authors' proceeds to The Mommies Network, a national non-profit charity."

More about The Mommies Network from the non-profit's website: They are "dedicated to helping moms find support and friendship in their local community. ... We were all in different places but we all share one need. A group of people who UNDERSTANDS us. Who understands that we can love our children and still miss being a grown-up some days. Who can give us a hug when we have a bad day. Who can be on the other end of the phone when the baby is crying and we don't know what else to do. Who gets us. Who we can get. We need each other."

And... if you're interested, here's the link that will take you directly to the page you need to buy the book:
