What does raising vegan children look like in today’s society? I started asking this question long before I became pregnant. As someone who’d been vegan for over four years by the time baby J was born, I knew that I wanted to raise her vegan. In today’s world, especially here in the Pacific Northwestern part of the US where we live, leading a vegan lifestyle has gotten easier. Lots of … Read the rest of the post →
It’s hard for me to believe that baby J is about to turn one in just a few days! This past year has been life-changing in too many ways to describe.

And that the “after” would bring on a turmoil of feelings and experiences that I’ve never had before.
