Community Events, May 2016
Vashon is fortunate to have a local history museum. The building itself is an artifact. For 109 years the iconic church building and adjacent residence have stood side-by-side, reminders of our community heritage and pride.
As a young mother of two, at times I felt like a portable dairy, but I almost always felt judged. I had my first baby in mid-Missouri — Bible Belt country — when I was too young to buy alcohol and I looked younger still. I struggled to trust my instincts as a mother because my own childhood hadn't provided good examples and the corporal punishment culture of my birthplace didn't resonate with my gut. I was 20 years old, feeling like an alien in a completely changed body and getting the stink eye everywhere I went for being a "teen mom." Needless to say, my mental health was not optimal.
