    Happy Birthday to this beauty! We were doubled up right from the start. We shared more in common than the others of our era. We were the Americans of our bunch and we were both one of three sisters. I always looked up to Cindy and found her to be both calming and really funny when we worked together. She has been a consistent and reliable friend and so supportive of everything I have done over the years. Have an amazing day and year! @cindycrawford β€πŸ“· @mariotestino for @vanityfair

    #12milesformoms View from my last long run before the Kilimanjaro Half taken earlier today. In one week I will be among a team of 18 women from across this country and other parts of the world who are all running to raise and awareness and much needed funds to improve access to essential maternal care. We run so that mothers living in rural areas around the world don't have to in order to reach the care they need. Distance is one of the biggest barriers women face when in need of care. It's one of three delays that put both her and her child's life at risk. To learn more go to www.everymothercounts.org or visit crowdrise.com to support @runteamemc #Tanzania17 #everymileeverymother

    Big love for these mother lovers who celebrated their Valentines Day at @everymomcounts learning how to install a @wecaresolar suitcase in preparation for our return trip to Tanzania next week. Thank you to our amazing partner #drlaurastatchel, an OB and mother, who co-founded this social enterprise with her sweet heart #HalAronson, a solar energy educator. Without electricity health workers struggle to provide care to expectant mothers and newborns in low resource settings. Since 2014, the @everymomcounts community have together provided 44 solar suitcases in Malawi and 50 in Tanzania πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›

    Eleven years ago today when we were all just babes. A lot is the same but so much is different. I remember bringing you home from the birth center the day you were born during a huge storm so we wouldn't get snowed in. Those first months were rough but we got through them. Still snow on the ground, but now you have so much hair on your head! Thanks for being such an easy, sweet and lovable kid. You brighten every day with your smile, especially on your birthday since your birthday, which was actually yesterday...HBD Finny B! We love you so much! And Happy Belated to our amazing doula & birth coach @amybrownnyc shares the same birthday! πŸ™πŸ½

    Happy Birthday to @edburns, proud New Yorker, lover of American history and values, father of my children and descendant of "off the boat" Irish and Swedish immigrants. These are the people who built tunnels & bridges, not walls. "Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door."- #EmmaLazarus #weareallimmigrants #nobannowall

    My mother, Elizabeth, and uncle, Jaime, with their dad shortly after reuniting with him in Santa Monica, California after two years living apart. Can you even imagine that? My grandfather Horacio Parker immigrated to Los Angeles from El Salvador in the 1940's, leaving behind my grandmother and their two children until he settled in and arranged for them to meet him there. My grandmother, Maria Infante Parker, had lost her third child, a little boy, before he left for the U.S. My mom tells a story about when they landed at LAX and didn't recognize their father who came to collect them with a friend because it had been so long since she had seen him. My grandparents took risks and left their country with broken hearts, all to start over and make a good life here. They worked hard and gave their children every opportunity they could afford to ensure their future success as free human beings. My mother excelled academically as a young student, learning English by watching TV and reading signs aloud. She grew up and traveled the world and always volunteered in her community and helped others along the way. Thank you Horacio, Maria, Elizabeth and Jaime, for doing the hard work to ensure your children would understand the sacrifices made to call this country theirs, to become American citizens, and empathize with countless others who have come to this country. #weareallmmigrants #nobannowall

    I stand in solidarity with all of those out there marching for and in defence of our human rights. Sisters & Brothers united by all we have in common and not deterred by that which attempts to divide. WE are stronger together and LOVE IS GREATER than hate. πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•
