Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood
Kristin Reed

Kristin Reed is the eldest daughter who helped raise four younger siblings. She spent her teen years babysitting for neighbors (a mothering job not always given adequate respect) and is now the mother of two grown children, step-mother of a now-grown step-son, and grandmother of two little boys. She was foster mother for many children, mostly teenaged girls, and has published seven poems, five short stories and two creative non-fiction essays.
