Our image was created by the mom of a special needs child. The word “MOM” is a palindrome – it is spelled the same both forwards and backwards. It is also a “mirror image” word which means it can be read the same in its current image and its mirror image. When you look at the number two, in its original image, side by side with its mirror image, they form the shape of a heart. Take “MOM 2” and put it next to a mirror, it will form the expression “Mom2Mom” and the two digits will form a heart shape in the middle of the two “Mom” words.
In other words, our image sums up what the Mom2Mom program stands for.
We understand you.......because we ARE you!
