Hey! I'm Courtney!
I'M COURTNEY, CREATOR OF THE FAMILY MA'AM.
It's me you'll find behind the keyboard! I currently work and reside in Florida with my fiancé and seven year old son, whom I haven't always called my own. I'm an artist through and through. From my profession to my hobbies, you'll always find me in my creative element. I'm a writer, photographer, and avid reader. I like to spend my free time creating. It's important for me to live a stimulating life- and that's the reason I do what I do.
I joined motherhood like so many other women do every day- not by giving birth, but by falling in love. My life is a bit different, and I'm not 'stepping in' in any traditional sense. Being in a relationship with someone who's home is the primary residence of his son- means I went from being childless, to being a prominent female role-model REAL QUICK. Talk about 0-100!
It's important to me that I share my story with you. During my journey I've had the amazing opportunity to interact with women from all over, many whom are walking in the same shoes as me! What I've really learned though, is that there aren't too many resources available from which we can learn or interact with other women who can relate on similar levels. But I want that to change.
I'm starting by sharing my story. And soon, many others' stories. I want to erase the 'Step-Mom' stigma. I'm just a millennial mama, with no former parenting experience navigating my way through new-found familyhood, and doing my best to help raise an amazing kid that I've come to love more than life itself.
I know I'm not alone in my journey. Have a story you'd like to authentically share? Contact me here.
