Finding friendships in the members of my local chapter was truly a blessing when my daughter was born and I was left in an awkward lurch with pre-baby friends. I have laughed, cried, celebrated, and grieved with the amazing women that make up my chapter and I am proud to be a part of The Mommies Network. The more years I spend as a member of HighCountryMommies.com, a volunteer staff member for The Mommies Network, and now a member of the national site, the more I grow to love this organization for all of the possibilities that set forth for their membership. Bravo to The Mommies Network!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I joined my local chapter (LittleRockMommies) in January of 2010 and was immediately amazed at what a great volunteer opportunity this is! I always knew if I was lucky enough to be a stay-at-home mom that I would want to volunteer to somehow give back to my community ... I just thought I'd have to wait until my kids were in school full-time. I love that I can do this fantastically rewarding job while my kiddo are still little (they're 2 and 4)!

The Great!

I joined my local chapter when my daughter, now 4, was only 2 months old. I had zero friends and my kids had zero friends. Now, I have more friends than I can count, and my kids do too! I've found a wonderful place for support and advice. I don't know what I'd do without the Mommies Network!

I joined my local chapter of TMN in 2005, I was a new first time mommy at the time. I don't know what I'd do without TMN and my local chapter. They offer such an amazing support system both online and off. My daughters and I have since made many new friendships through TMN .

I joined my local chapter of The Mommies Network in 2007, when I was unknowingly pregnant with my 3rd child. My family had moved and we were pretty much isolated, try as I might I could not really make friends. I was depressed and lonely. Joining TMN has given me so much it's hard to list. I have many friends, oodles of opportunities to help my community, and now it gives me a sense of purpose to be among those that help make my chapter go. It has given me much, much more than that as well.

I am so glad for TMN being there for me when I needed it.

I now have friends, where I didn't have any before. I would go so far as to say that because of the Mommies Network I've found a surrogate family.

I would like to have a more structured game plan for the volunteers to follow. However, in the absence of said game plan, there is no frustration when volunteers get it not quite right.

I joined my local chapter when my son was 4-6 weeks old. I was totally lost, and I desperately needed to meet both new and seasoned mommies. What a true Godsend. Within 2 months, I was volunteering because I just knew that this nonprofit was valuable. Every mom needs support, and The Mommies Network is the place to be!

Without my local chapter of The Mommies Network, I would never have met so many awesome mommies, made great lasting friendships, and have a place to go for anything whenever I need it!! Finding The Mommies Network and my local chapter has been the best thing to happen since my son was born!

I recently joined this organization and it has been a wonderful experience, after getting home from the hospital with my new baby I suffered a pretty severe bout of the "baby blues". Mommies network really helped me get through it by introducing me to other mothers and giving me a wide variety of accessible events to go to that really helped ease my new mother feelings of claustrophobia. I would reccomend this group to anyone it is invaluable!

The Mommies Network is one of the most important things in my life. Without this organization, I wouldn't have the wonderful friends I've made, nor would I have my children as actively involved in working with the community. Through volunteering with TMN on my local chapter, we've made great friends, have given support when needed, gotten support on everything from dealing with my special needs daughter to finding that perfect recipe for dinner, participated in several events in the community reaching out and helping others, and much, much more! I am normally a shy and reserved person, but being a part of such a great group of moms has made me more outgoing and has made me a stronger mother. The support mothers get from The Mommies Network is invaluable and it's one of the greatest resources for moms around.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have made several new friends, met a ton of people that if I weren't volunteering with The Mommies Network I may never have met, have had the opportunity to work with local organizations on events with children and parents in our area, and have worked on a park clean-up crew cleaning up one of our local parks, all of which have in my opinion have made me a better mother, friend, and citizen.

Change nothing. The organization is fantastic as is and there is not one thing I would change about it.

Where would I be without The Mommies Network? I'm not sure, but I'm sure it wouldn't be a pretty place. My local chapter was there for me when I was pregnant with my first, and needed lots of support. They helped me make it through lots of post partum depression, when no one else understood what I was going through. They reminded me that all these silly questions I have don't make me crazy, but just a normal mom. When my son was sick, they helped me through it, and when I thought I was going crazy after quitting my job, they told me it was normal. I've made some amazing friends through my local chapter, and am so grateful to have this service. I volunteer my time and energy to make sure that this organization continues on to help support all mommies out there!
