To me, there is nothing more magical than the beginning of a new life. I have infinite respect for women carrying, growing, birthing and raising children. I used to think I was obsessed with the whole thing. Today, a man who was present at my own birth corrected me when I explained this 'obsession' of mine. He told me, "It's called passion." A few months ago, I had an epiphany. After trying, for so long, to figure out what I wanted to be, it just hit me. The only thing I have always been passionate about is women carrying, birthing, and raising children. I'm a midwife-at-heart already.... I just need to get the schooling! Birthingway College is one of three colleges in the U.S. like it, and it is exactly where I need to be. Beyond my fascination and passion for the art of midwifery, it is in my blood. My Grandmother, Dr. Maija Katlaps, was a midwife and delivered myself and my three sisters at home. My own mother and aunt also practiced midwifery to varying degrees. In order to attend Birthingway, I need to complete two more prerequisites this Fall. One is an all body systems anatomy and physiology course and the other is a Doula course. I am unable to use student loans or financial aid for these courses because they are not a part of the 'degree seeking program.' Please help me. It's humbling to ask for money, but I have never wanted something so badly in my life. Now that I know what I want to do, I am making it happen... But I need a little assistance. Whether you can donate a $5 or $100, it will get me that much closer to starting my career! Thank you so much! Love, Vivi
