I spent last weekend covering the protests surrounding the NATO summit held inside McCormick Place. Saturday was my first day down there and was a nice little lead into what was to come on Sunday....

Mooseheart Maternity Home

| No Comments | No TrackBacks


Mooseheart Child City was founded in 1913 and since then, over 12,000 children have received help from the campus. The newest addition to the campus, opening in October of 2011, is the Maternity home located in the once vacant South Carolina house. The home is a intended to be a safe haven for underage mothers who would be on their own otherwise.
I've had a great time following the first group of mothers through their pregnancy and can't thank them all enough for allowing me to spend so much time with them.
