From Mom to Mom (Original Name: Von Mutter zu Mutter) VMZM is a magazine which contains letters from mothers and fathers to themselves back to the day, when they got the diagnosis Down Syndrome for their kids. Everyone tells her- or himself that it is ok to grieve and that it will be good. The life with the kid will be a blessing. This magazine is totally financed by donation, produced 17.000 pieces - more than 11.000 are distributed to whole Germany. Doctors, midwifes, therapists and families/friends directly can order the magazine for free. The dream was that parents get it with the diagnosis and it happens all over Germany everyday. It catches people, when they loose the ground. The magazine brings hope into dark hours.
