mira-and-momKim Wise - Someone once said that you never know the love of a parent until you become one. Before I became a mom to a preemie a few months ago, I never knew my true capacity to love and sacrifice. I also better understand my own mother and some of the decisions she's made on our behalf. By choice, I'm the Founder of Wise Health Communications where I help clients tell stories about their products and business through media and other communiques. By design I am the mom of a little girl named Mira who has changed my life. Today, I find myself a woman and a mom who's determined to blend my beautiful little blessing and a life already defined into an existence I can be proud of. Find more about our journey through the NICU on my blog "Momming a Miracle".
