We could not have chosen a person who was more in-tune with our purpose. Jay's talent superseded our expectations. When we all met to view samples of book cover for the first time ... he had us in tears! We are so grateful for his belief in us ~ thank you from all our hearts, Jay. For being so prompt, friendly and understanding about all our printing urgencies ... your work is the bees-knees! University of Regina Bookstore In particular, Peter Adams! What a guy!! He has been a tremendous supporter of ours by holding Book Signings and "Congratulating!" us every step of the way :) p.s. You must check out the scarf collection they have in-store for $5.95 a gorgeous piece!

How MUCH we appreciate you not only coming to our talks, but for also recording and digitizing our videos for our site so that families who can't attend or buy our book have this valuable resource to watch. You've helped out more than you'll ever know!
Ted has been a cheerleader of ours since we had our first CBC Morning News Edition radio interview on July 22nd, 2008!! The energy in that room between us all was prolific and remains so as he's doing his best to get us on the Steven & Chris Show and then Oprah! He wants our message to go global because he believes in our vision and thinks we make good "guest!" Let's join Ted in his vision for us - let's dream BIG, everyone!! Let's make that difference to Moms and their families who are needlessly suffering - it does take a village to raise a healthy and happy child! It takes this same village to raise a healthy and happy mother and father, too.
Well...if it wasn't for Claire's incredibly bright spirit and being inspired by our stories, she wouldn't have organized the first "Unmasking Postpartum Depression" conference in Regina and continued a wave of change for our province! Our conference was meant to be a Call-for-Action and that is most certainly what is happening ~ www.skmaternalmentalhealth.ca! A heartfelt thank-you to Dr. Angela Bowen, too, who took it upon herself to join our steering committee, as well! WHAT A TEAM!! One last note...Claire nominated our team for the YWCA Women of Distinction Awards, and we WON in the "Circle of Friends" category. It will be a night we'll always remember!!! Claire is also a recipient of last year's Awards in the category "Entrepreneurship & Innovation" and felt it was only right to nominate a person/people for 2010...what spirit!
Dianne is über creative and passionate as ever! She created our documentary out of the goodness of her heart and pocket book because she KNOWS the value of telling such stories. No worries, we're making up for all her beautiful work and generosity!
Maternal Mental Health Strategy for SK, our mission propelled to even greater heights! Together, Angela and Lindsey facilitate and organize the bi-weekly Webex meetings for the 30+ members that represent every region of Saskatchewan; Lindsey will be writing the policy. What's happening in the year 2010 is absolutely stellar as the health care professionals of this province are rising up to create a universal screening and a comprehensive treatment program for each pregnant and new mother's entire well-being ~ physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Here's to continued vibrant success for the "MotherFirst" strategy for the mothers and their families of Saskatchewan! One other thing...our team wants to thank the both of them with a 3-week vacation in the sun, if we could for promoting and organizing the venue for our documentary debut in Saskatoon...over 100 people attended! THANK YOU : )) One LAST thing...thank you to Angela for writing such a powerful letter of support for our YWCA Women of Distinction nomination package!
