I am Marie a #TwinBoyMom who loves coffee (am) and wine (pm), being outside, the ocean & mermaids, and traveling the world! My twins, Ian and Joshua were born prematurely at 32 weeks and spent 3 weeks in the NICU. While both were healthy, they were delayed in reaching all of their developmental milestones. Through therapy and LOTS of books, both boys are now in Kindergarten, learning to read and love books as much as I do!
In addition to children's literacy, I am passionate about mental health awareness. As a survivor of an extremely brutal battle with post-partum depression resulting from 11 weeks on bedrest with my boys, a traumatic labor and delivery, and resulting NICU stay, I want to help others suffering from depression and other mental illnesses to know they are not alone!
Using books as tools to educate and assist in working through difficult emotions for children is so fulfilling! Together, we can Make Waves!
