Reaching More Families; Providence Mom in 10 Languages

0

It has long been our desire to ensure that Providence Mom is a parenting resource for ALL moms (and dads, and families in general!). You may have noticed that we have some new writers and our 2022 Providence Mom Writing Team is the most diverse to date. We are thrilled to be able to share more inclusive parenting perspectives, knowing that our great state of Rhode Island is a diverse one. We still have more work to do, and we will keep doing it.

The most recent addition to our site is the ability to translate the entire site into 9 language in addition to English! Specifically, Arabic, Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.

Simply click on the drop down in our site menu (desktop and mobile), click your desired language, and our entire site will be shown in your preferred language. Our software does not have the capability to translate text within an image, but moving forward, we will take care to ensure that pertinent information is included in all text as well as images.

We are thrilled to be able to provide translation for Providence Mom articles, and hope that those reading our site who are not native English speakers will find new connection, insights, and community by being able to interact with the Providence Mom website in their own language.

We are always looking for new ideas on how we can do better to ensure that all moms feel represented here, and welcome your ideas, your presence, and your words. For feedback on how we can continue to do better, send us an email! To join our writing team, apply here!

Brooke has spent most of her life in Rhode Island, having grown up in Foster, and moving back to RI after high school in Foxboro, MA. Since becoming a foster parent in 2005, she has cared for 8 children with special needs. The first child placed in her home is now 22, and continues to both brighten and challenge her days. She is stepmom to two young children, who brighten and challenge her days in totally different ways. Brooke has worked with people with special needs for 17 years and currently works as a case manager for children with autism at a non-profit in Southeastern MA. She feels strongly that raising tiny, adorable beings up into functioning, kind, emotionally stable adults is hard, and we all, as mothers, aunts, stepmothers, foster mothers, friends, and grandmothers, have a role in making that easier for each other. Every child (and adult for that matter) we come into contact with will either be better or worse off for the experience, and we should take that seriously, while extending grace to those along with us on this journey. Brooke is passionate about serving others (although she sometimes struggles to do so cheerfully) and advocating for those who can not advocate for themselves. She loves Jesus, a well made gin and tonic, home renovation, and overlooking the dog hair on her floors.
