It Takes a Village Blog

takesavillageHillary Clinton borrowed her 1996 book title from a centuries-old Igbo African proverb, "Ora na azu nwa."  The Igbo people name their children "Nwa ora" which means child of the community.  I have been a co-owner of this community since the mid 1990s, and I raised five children here.  During this entire time, I had the great fortune of being a stay-at-home mom, so I had many wonderful and unique opportunities to get to know the children of this "village."  Growing up in this community has been a great experience for MY children and for so MANY more, and so this blog is about sharing some stories and some ideas that we can use to strengthen and enrich the lives and futures of our chidren, as a village.
