Birthday Party at Covenant House, June 21, 2012

This year was a special birthday for me. It was special because it was one of those “significant” numbers, but more importantly, it was special because of the way I was able to celebrate it. I had my birthday gathering at the wonderful Covenant House Mother and Child Program for homeless adolescent moms and their babies. Here is a link to the program: . Friends, colleagues and family members who came brought presents for the 18 moms and 20 babies there, and it was a joy. My daughter did make-up for all of the moms who wanted to be “done up.”

It was one of the high points of my life and I felt a profound sense of gratitude for being able to celebrate in this way.
