Hi Mommas, still publishing fertility related poetry at The Fertile Source. This week Alana I. Capri takes a look at questions of motherhood, the uncertainty facing a child adopted out vs. abortion as a form of love in her interview:

Her prose poem, A Book of LIfe in Ten Parts, can be read here:

Not for the faint of heart, though an important perspective along the spectrum of the experience of motherhood.

This is a response to Stephanie Baffone's blog post yesterday about the sacredness of children's art.

Today I address why the act of writing is so challenging for kids. I discuss:
- why kids can ace spelling tests but have a spelling train wreck in their essays and papers;
- how to help kids bridge the gap between spelling test and free written work; and
- how to look at their spelling errors to give parents/educators a better understanding of their strengths and weaknesses.

Please check it out!
