I volunteer as President of Temiskaming Multiple Births and Director of Communications on the Board of Directors of Multiple Births Canada

I love these positions, even though I sometimes resent them (I guess that means I resent myself) for all the time they take up.

I had the privilege of going to a weekend long Board meeting and work session in beautiful Mattawa, Ontario this past weekend.  The Board worked very hard to complete tasks and plan for the next conference and retreat.  We’re talking 15 hour days here.  Plus all the hours put in at home year round.

I was in awe of the women and man (we have one man on the board) who spend so much time to advocate for change and to help other families with multiples.  I won’t go into detail here but there are many issues that parents of multiples have to deal with that parents of singletons just can’t understand, even is they are only 12 months apart, that is not the same as twins.
This post is about recognizing the work put in at MBC and all the chapters across Canada (affiliated with MBC or not) who toil away to help others.  
YOU ROCK!
Here’s a little present for twin moms – too funny! 

It is also to recognize all volunteers everywhere – without you we would be lost.
THANK YOU.
PS – to all families with Multiples in Ontario (or close by).  Brampton Twins Plus Association is hosting a day at Canada’s Wonderland to celebrate National Multiple Births Awareness Day.  Contact them if you want to join us, you don’t have to be a member!
Here is two videos that demonstrates why we need organizations to support multiple birth families.  The medical system can not afford to support them outside of the hospital and doctors office, but families can and do support one another.
