Welcome to The Mothers Of The Milky Way!

We are two mothers who were moved by the story of a little girl whose life was saved through the generosity, love and care of mothers (and their babies) who were willing to share their milk. This story has brought us all together, and these are our stories.

If you are interested in donating milk and live in the West Michigan area, please e mail us:

Jayden and Michael - Dec. 2010

By: The Milk Maid
Since the first donation drive, Jayden's, and her brother Michael's, health has continued to improve. Michael is truly thriving (he'll soon be bigger than Jayden) but she's become a pretty typical toddler in every way other than her continued inability to tolerate any sustenance other than breast milk. As you can see, she's a happy girl!
Michael (7 months) and Jayden (19 months) at the home of their adoptive parents Callie and Mark. Placement with their permanent family was finalized right before Christmas. What a wonderful gift for all of them!
