Josephine Baker. Guinevere. Frida Kahlo. Lisha grew up identifying with these women. None gave birth to children. Lisha's 14 year long journey of infertility/miscarriage/adoption and ultimately giving birth to a son shaped her mission - to bring these topics out of the closet and on to the table. She writes passionately on her blog seespeakhearmama.wordpress.com and serves as an adoption peer counselor at Spence Chapin Family Services. Lisha supports families as a postpartum doula and is working towards certification as a birth doula with Child Birth International. Refusing to limit herself she spends her days doing it all. Fulfilling her dream of becoming a writer, dancing, designing, homeschooling and loving her 5 children and supporting the efforts of the Harlem YMCA as she spearheads a unique nutrition and holistic health component to their programming. Her first book - A Broader Scope of Love chronicling her journey to motherhood will be released in spring 2013.
