I am a 28 year old mother of one veg kid (Jake the Dynamo - he's
4 years old), wife to a wonderful compassionate husband, and
guardian to 6 dogs and 2 cats. Our family is involved in rescue
and rehab of an assortment of animals, animal rights and
welfare, environment, and of course each other.
We try to live our lives on the karma principles: whatever you
do will come back to you. It isn't always easy...particularly
when dealing with anti-animal rights and general ignorant
people. But we make the best of every situation.
Right now life is taking a slow pace for me. I am very pregnant
and due any day. I am enjoying a good book ("A Hatful of Pain" by
Craig Burton), taking my daily 'family' nap with all the animals
on my bed, watching movies, of course the Internet, and
cleaning. (For those of you that have not experienced pregnancy
you get a 'nesting' instinct that compels you to clean and
re-clean everything you own...rearrange furniture at 3am...even
as far as waking your mate to help.)
On that note we try to have the most chemical free compassionate
house we can. So many cleaning products harm animals and the
environment plus they leave a nasty residue behind. There are
hundreds of amazing all natural products available...I will be
adding links soon.
I am really excited to have this blog and opportunity to share
our lives with you. I hope this will be able to inspire other
families to go vegan and to prove to nay sayers that a vegan
pregnancy is not a bad thing...in fact we vegans are better off
through pregnancy than our meat eating sisters. How will I
prove this? Through this baby's history, my doctors comments,
pictures, and facts.
