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:
