Love Story

I get so excited when I see your magazine in my mailbox. I just got back from my tenth wedding anniversary vacation without kids- and what a great "welcome home" it was to see your September issue waiting for me. I am 37 with a 2o-year-old stepdaughter who lives at home and a 7-year-old daughter from my fabulous marriage with my husband, Dan. I raised my stepdaughter, and now I'm goingthrough itall again. I love Working Mother magazine. The articles and tips give me the lift I need. Thank you for the best magazine out there. -Nina shatz, siwon, MA

I love Working Mother, and even more, I love seeing extremely talented women like your editor-in-chief, Suzanne Riss, making it to the top and still being able to balance the whole job/family thing.

I've been in the hotel business for many years, and all my role models were women who "almost" made it to the top, and never with very young kids. I don't know if the tides are changing, but I feel like everywhere I look now, I find women who made it all the way to the top and didn't have to wait until their kids were grown to do it.

Survivor Moms

I have been meaning to write this letter to thank Carol Evans for the column about her friend Jan Smith, who battled cancer [CEO Mom, November 2007]. I received the issue the same week I had to explain to my 7-year-old daughter, Sophia, that I was about to start taking medicine (chemotherapy) for the sickness in my chest (breast cancer), having just been in the hospital to have the sickness removed (bilateral mastectomy and hysterectomy) a few weeks before, and that my hair would be falling out soon. This was quite possibly the hardest thing IVe ever done. …
