We're meant to gather in a village, hearing from the elders, passing down our own knowledge and receiving wisdom from others.

It is my great pleasure in sharing this interview with mama and, in my mind, elder Jean Dawkins.
Jean is a mama of a daughter now in college, and is a reminder to us all that it's really never too late to explore how motherhood has changed you...
