Why an elephant?
Because it takes a village. Elephants understand this. Their matriarchal society relies on a group effort to raise children and support mothers. Everyone pitches in, and with the collective effort they thrive. This is called Allomothering, or Alloparenting, and its where our group name comes from.
I’m Christie- and this is my son Kelly. He turned one in the spring of 2018. I was born and raised in upstate New York, but have called San Diego home for over a decade. I am a photographer and lover of avocados.
Before my son was born I had crafted a life that I loved. I was completely unprepared for how the arrival of this tiny human would upend that life. It has been a raw, and humbling experience- but I am now joyfully crafting the next chapter with the help of a small friend. He challenges me and teaches me every day, and I have grown so much as a person because of him.
Growth isn’t always comfortable. I have been so blessed to have the support of my husband, my family, and my best friend Sara, but still I felt adrift, and that I needed community of like minded moms.
Allomamas is here for you- the imperfect mom who is navigating the ever changing road that is motherhood.
Hi. I am Sara. Self driven, free spirited, taco loving Realtor and mother of one little girl.
