I am a single mother by choice, blessed with my daughter Raphaela, conceived and born in Jerusalem in October 2009. Raising a happy and healthy child; balancing work, parenthood and relationships; with the additional challenge of doing it on my own, in Israel.

This weekend, Raphaela started using a new word, in Hebrew: "Ani" [I, Me], representing the first time that she has expressed herself truly as an individual, separate physically and emotionally from her mother. I could not be any more proud.
