    my name is brittany. Im a mommy at 19 married to brannon lee who is 21. we have a beautiful 12 month old daughter Londyn noel! she is the center of our world. Every decision we make is based on whats best for her. she has made us two very proud parents and we couldnt imagine life without her. we love taking short family trips to the aquarium and we just took her on a short trip to her first visit at the pumpkin patch- she had a blast!

    Hi my name is Katie and I am 20 years old! I have a 1 1/2 year old son and another boy on the way that is due in a month! We are so excited that it is October because of the fact that it is Halloween and we get to dress our son up and take him out for the first time :) !! Last Halloween he had the H1N1 flu and was really sick and was in the hospital so we didn’t get to go out and have fun. I am so very blessed to have such a wonderful son and another one on the way, I love BornFree products and think that they are whats best for my kids, I use your products and I also recommend them when people ask me what kind of Sippy cup, Bottle, Paci. . . . ect i like! :) Your products are the BEST!

    I also put a family photo up on the BornFree facebook page!

  • Carly said:

    My name is Carly and my husband’s name is Geoff. We have little girl Olivia born may 2nd 2008, and our son Jackson who was born May 20th 2010. We do not have any family pictures yet. Jackson was born with infant respiratory distress syndrome. This is where there are holes in the lungs, we almost lost him, then getting home was a challenge, he has a milk and soy protein intolerance as well as severe silent reflux. So unfortunately we have had a rough summer and no chance to get any family portraits done. I do have some pictures of the kids though :) I love that my family is strong. Even our 2 year old has been a rock threw this rough time. She would pat my cheek and tell me not to worry when she could sense I was stressed out with worry. I am a stay at home mom, and I sacrifice a lot to be a stay at home mom. So my clothes are not couture, and I don’t get a manicure anymore, but these are all things I am happy to give up to be able to stay home and raise my children :) Born Free products have been a life saver with my son’s reflux . Finally a bottle that works for him :) I am HAPPY to report he has been problem free for a month. We are excited to start living again. Olivia is such a good big sister. So helpful. We are truly blessed . I love my family. In my eyes we are perfect. Flaws and all!!

  • Shelice Lennon said:

    I would vote for number 2, because I know Miranda personally and she is a very dedicated stay at home wife and mother and she even plays daddy when her husband leaves on deployment. I know with baby number three on the way, it would be a perfect bornfree gift pack for her.

    Not sure if we can vote for our own family. But I’m voting for my Family #2. My husband is an amazing Dad and Husband. He works really hard to defend our freedom and everyone’s freedom. He sacrafices allot for his family. Being gone for 6-8 months at a time is not easy when you have kids. My sons are amazing and can’t wait to meet our 3rd baby boy that it is due 02/16/2011 :)

  • Eldon said:

    I’m voting for my family, the Hatch Family #2. Not sure if we can vote for our own family. My wife is amazing Mom and Wife! She takes care of our two boys being a SAHM and now is pregnant with our 3rd baby boy that is due in Feb 2011. This would really help us out to win :)

  • Tamara Mabry-Wilson said:

    I cast my vote for the Hatch family. My kids are grown, but I can relate to Miranda. I know what struggling with a young family is like. We raised four on a meager income for years. I’m a HUGE fan of any man or woman who sacrifices to defend our country. Good luck Hatch family!:)
