#DearMama, though you may often feel out of place know that you are exactly where you belong. No matter what borders you cross or which ones crossed you. Whether the moves you made were by choice, under duress, or by force. You may look for a place outside of yourself to call home but home is within you. You have a right to be here. The land beneath you and the sky above you is yours to claim.
Fresh out of Black Mama Creative Week, we’ve got a wonderful #newepisode for you.
Tune in for a rich discussion with Haitian American Mama featuring our special guest co-host Stepha Lafond of Mama Slay Life! We cover Stepha’s birth story, her journey from Haiti to America, motherhood and the diverse views of Black diaspora’s relationship to Africa.
Stepha is a motherhood transition coach who is dedicated to helping moms navigate the delicate space between who they were and who they are still becoming. Her services and programs infuse personal development and spirituality and are designed to help moms reclaim their personal power so they can do life and motherhood on their own terms.
