– “I went to Valinda in a time of my life when most new mothers are full of joy and exhilaration, instead I was stumbling through postpartum depression and the shifting identity from career woman to stay at home mom. She became a constant source of grace and wisdom, offering her parental and marital insight”. V.S.
