Who is Mommies In Orbit?
The Mom behind the blog is a former technical writer for a satellite imaging company. So what does an "orbit" have to do with being a Mom? As parents of kids and pets, we find ourselves orbiting around all of them to ensure their safety. It's just what we do!
Besides staying one step ahead of twin teenagers and hanging out with my two rescue dogs, Cody and Nikki, I also enjoy aviation history, photography and escaping from cooking duties whenever I can!
Pilots N Paws
Pilots N Paws was founded in 2008 by animal-lover Debi Boies and pilot Jon Wehrenberg. The idea first took flight when Jon agreed to help Debi by flying a rescued Doberman from Florida to South Carolina, to save the dog’s life. The trip was a success and the two brainstormed on how to rescue other animals.
The dream quickly became a reality when the website, http://www.pilotsnpaws.org was launched, to provide a location where private pilots willing to provide free transport, and people and organizations who rescue, shelter or foster animals, could connect to save lives. Today the organization has reached more than 5,000 pilot volunteers and more than 12,000 volunteers.

“The Zen of Midlife Mothering.”
"My Journey Into Midlife Motherhood" essay by Karen C. Hug
"Share the triumphs, tragedies, losses and love of Midlife Mothers - women choosing motherhood over age 40 for the first, repeat or last time. The Zen of Midlife Mothering celebrates the heartbreak and glory of new midlife mothers, and of those standing firmly in place as mothers now in mid-life. In this increasingly popular trend of new older parenting, these women do not share a collective consciousness like many of their younger counterparts, but rather a rainbow of disparate and diverse voices representing a vast array of ages, life circumstances and personal perspectives."
