Single Mom By Choice – Part 7: Where there is a will, there is a way!

I am a tad superstitious. I like believing in the little things. I lift my feet when driving over train tracks, I touch the outside of the plane before getting on, I make a wish at 11:11 and I eat 12 grapes at midnight on New Year's Day!

Single Mom By Choice – Part 5: Let’s In-Vitro!

It can cost up to 8500$ for one in vitro fertility procedure and that doesn't include the cost of sperm... wow.

Do you believe in reincarnation? This 10-year-old's story might change your mind on the topic... he is pretty convincing! It started with nightmares of Hollywood at the age of 4 & later Ryan looked at a still from an early Hollywood movie, pointed out some random obscure extra and said, "That’s me. That’s who I was."...

Be inspired… Help Madison reach her goal!

You might have seen Madison's viral video of her singing John Legend's "All Of Me". She is a Toronto teen with down syndrome showing the world that, despite her disease -- a genetic disorder that tends to make one's voice lower and take twice as much energy to produce -- she can sing! Madison reportedly practiced "a lot" before...
