Comments Off on I Was Meant To Be Their Mum

Here is Super Mum Christina sharing her story in Prima, the lovely parenting magazine. Foster mum Christina has taken two very special children under her wing permanently, and when you read about Mikey and Dean we think you’ll understand why. Gorgeous family – read more here…

Christina loved being a foster mum. But there were two very special children who she just couldn’t let leave her family…

Christina, 53, explains:

After I’d had four children, I was a single mum and wanted to help other kids who hadn’t had it as lucky as my own.

In 2004, I qualified as a foster parent.

I had a few children come to me – all with different stories. Some for a week, some for a few months. Then along came Dean.

As soon as he was in my arms, I know he was going to be mine forever. There was no way I could have ever let him go. Read more

New Year Old You

Comments Off on New Year Old You

We love putting together lifestyle pieces for glossy magazines, especially when it might encourage people to reignite a passion for a long lost hobby. (Might have something to do with a long lost love of tap dancing ourselves…)


Here’s Cecile and Fiona, appearing in Woman Magazine celebrating their love of childhood hobbies. Read all about it here.

A recent survey revealed that £18.4billion is spent a year on hobbies – about £384 a year per hobbyist. But of those surveyed, one in ten people have had to abandon their favourite hobby entirely, which for many means a drop in their quality of life. For Fiona and Cecile, going back to their childhood hobbies has given them a new lease of life…

Comments Off on Babies Who Taught Us So Much

We work closely with the Down’s Syndrome community and are proud of how positive a message we’re getting in the media. We are determined to change attitudes to special needs families and with the help of gorgeous kids like these, it’s easy. Here Hayley, Anita and Rachel share their celebratory stories…

In celebration of World Down’s Syndrome Day, these mums share their stories…


Rachel, 42, mum to Rosie, 16 months. “I was scared she’d change my life, now I’m glad she has!”

I could tell as soon as I looked at Rosie that she had Down’s Syndrome. I couldn’t help but fast forward twenty years and feel terrified of what the future held.
The euphoria at giving birth was replaced by fear and I wish I’d know then I had nothing to fear.

Anna is a shining example of fitness – and she doesn’t want any women thinking that just because they aren’t built like Cameron Diaz, they’re not fit and fabulous. Anna spoke up in Best magazine to show readers the true meaning of fitness.

Just saying – you don’t have to be thin to be fit.
Anna, 36, says:
Fat back, chunky arms – that’s what people think when they see me coming.
You probably think I’m a layabout, right? Wrong. I get it all the time. When I enter my Zumba class, people think I’m there to dawdle at the back. When I go to the front of the room and take charge, their faces are a picture.
How can I possibly do up to eight hours of exercise a day and still wear a size 14?
