Staying on Mission

My goal is to support, equip, and empower USNA parents with strength, knowledge, and wisdom to navigate this unique journey successfully. MidMoms and MidDads are a different breed:  we stick together, we are resilient, we are faithful, we are not strangers but are lifelong friends - even if we have never met. We will always share the lifelong bond of our Mid's journey and, of course, like our Mids, we Never Give Up the Ship!
