    Thank you for the story. Wish more could have been told here than a few paragraphs.

    Chinooki- just let the DN do the stories it wants. U R free to start your own paper and articles any time.

    Jumpin Jack: I think you are jumpin' to contusions. Our society doesn't have the expectation that a man will do nothing else with his life than be a dad. Yet, being a dad is the single most important activity a man will ever do. Women are AT LEAST as capable as men in fulfilling parental roles and "doing something else."

    @ Jumpin Jack

    The story is about a woman and mother pursuing her dreams. Why make it anything more? Good grief, some people just cant leave well enough alone.

    A quick response to chinookdocotr. Let us never forget that the greatest role a woman can fulfill in this life is to be an effective mother. I am concerned that the comment; "...doing something with their lives in addition to be moms." has an undertone that perhaps someone who spends a majority of thier time being a mom simply isn't leading a fulfilling life or allowing that person to: "follow her dreams and fulfill her capacity." I know many good women who have sacrificed much for the good of their children and have no doubt they will be rewarded greatly not only in this life, but in the life to follow. My congratulations also to our Mormon athlete we are proud of her and her family.

    I wish Deseret News would do more stories on women doing something with their lives in addition to being moms. Good for this woman and hats off to her husband for being courageous enough to help his wife follow her dreams and fulfill her capacity.
