We all love being a mom, before we talk about mom life, share with us who you are. We want to know your story- what do you love to do? what are you passionate about?
I was raised in Michoacán. I have 5 sisters. My dad is from Michoacán and mom was from Oaxaca. My mom shared with me her love for gardening. I love plants, I love to see them growing. Also, I love to share stories. Stories are a big part of our lives and my abuelito shared many stories with us. But especially, I love to be in contact with my community and learn from them.
Mom is a title we are all proud of, tell us your birth story!
I gave birth in California. During my pregnancy I had two ultrasounds that showed that I was expecting to have a boy. We choose to call him Pablo honoring my husband best friend. However, I got a beautiful girl and I couldn’t have been happier. I called her Myrna honoring my older sister who passed away a year before my daughter born. Myrna knows that her name is a present from her tía.
