An extraordinary family – built their own way. Here we have Regina and Megan writing open letters to each other in Woman Magazine. Regina and her husband adopted Megan and her sister Lily when they were young girls and now that Megan is 18 she felt ready to reflect on what it means to her to be adopted. Megan is a wise and wonderful soul who articulated how much her parents meant to her in such a beautiful way – and Regina was just as gorgeous! They are such a fab family and I was honoured to write this piece celebrating how successful adoption can be.

Megan and Regina are in this week’s Woman, out now.

I love these sisters – what a super relationship they share. When Melissa could not conceive, big sis Lisa stepped in to offer up her womb. As surrogate, she was able to give Melissa the greatest gift – beautiful twins. I loved Lisa’s sense of humour too – when strangers stopped her to congratulate her on her bump, she’d say: ‘Thanks, they’re my brother-in-law’s babies’ and ‘They’re not mine,’ which is my kind of humour!

Melissa shared their story in Woman’s Own. We wish you the very best with the twins, Melissa!

Fabulous Magazine has had a refurb and is looking… fabulous! In yesterday’s edition I was lucky enough to write about this incredible woman – Akuja De Garang had to flea southern Sudan when she was eight years old, after civil war made it unsafe for her family to live there. She eventually settled in Britain but always knew her heart belonged in South Sudan. As soon as it was safe she returned, and has devoted her life to girls’ education. For her services, she was awarded an MBE this year.

You can read her story here. 

 

 

Alcohol just so happens to be legal – but it’s still a drug and for some people the line between what’s socially acceptable and what can become a dangerous addiction is blurred. For Leanne, the journey to sobriety took her to some dark places, but she is doing incredibly well now. Her family stuck by her and never stopped believing in her and now, she is a beacon of hope and positivity with a love of the great outdoors and life’s more meaningful experiences.

Huge love to Leanne for everything she has achieved. Raising awareness about alcoholism in this week’s Best magazine, her story is incredible.
