Feel Thankful for the Little Things With BIH Mom MiJanique

We recently caught up with BIH mom MiJanique and her beautiful family, including her two children, Nazaire Awoudja and Heaven Awoudja. In our Q&A with MiJanique, we learned what she is thankful for, and what she hopes for in the New Year, including welcoming a brand new bundle of joy!

How many children do you have and what are their ages?
2-year old son & I am currently 6 months pregnant

What is your favorite activity to do with your child(ren)?
Go on outings, especially to the park!

What is a resource that you have found helpful as a mother? 
Since I don’t have very much family myself, I find most of my community online. The internet has helped me connect with like-minded people. 

In what way(s) has BIH been helpful? What aspects of the program do you enjoy?
I am still fairly new to the program, but they gave me hope that there are people out there to help and assist me with this pregnancy and postpartum journey.

What are you most thankful for this year as we enter the upcoming holiday season?
The basic necessities such as food, shelter, and family. We often take those simple things for granted, but at the same time, they can be taken away from you at any time, so I’m very grateful and thankful for these three things.

What are you looking forward to the most in 2024- for yourself and family?Having a safe delivery and healthy baby. Being able to accomplish all my goals that I set for myself each year no matter how big or small.
