While Fort Worth Moms (FWM) can provide online resources, stories of encouragement and solidarity, and information, that publishing medium alone doesn’t serve as the connector of women. We want mothers to feel less alone, less isolated — and that is true now more than ever!
Thus, we are looking for women who are the connectors. Women who are comfortable buidling community in a digital space. Who are aren’t afraid to jump right in there and start discussion, to cheer for other moms, and to say “I know what you mean!”
