History

 

1996 SeaTac WA– Gayle Diama given the idea of HomeMom’s Heart as a nonprofit organization for networking and providing goods and services of monetary value for “career” HomeMoms.

6/2004 – 4/2005 Eugene OR—upon seeing (still) that no organization exists in the USA for HomeMoms as Gayle envisioned, Gayle Diama composes, publishes and distributes a simple monthly and bi-monthly newsletter to 20 -30 HomeMoms, to “test the waters” for response, interest, and create networking with other HomeMoms.

6/14/05 [Nonprofit] Articles of Incorporation filed with Oregon State Corporation Division.

1/2006- 2/2008 HomeMom’s Heart is placed on the sidelines, as Gayle is too encompassed  (in her job) raising her family to devote her time to developing HomeMom’s Heart.

3/2008 – 2/2009Gayle continues to think about HomeMom’s Heart, yet is concerned because she has not acted formally upon her passion to help HomeMoms, and she sees HomeMoms almost becoming extinct within families and communities. She decides the time is now to either organize HomeMom’s Heart, or let it go/do nothing.

3/2009Gayle is led to organize HomeMom’s Heart, as she wants current and future HomeMom numbers to increase;  HomeMoms to achieve better support and assistance; to offer HomeMom positive public relations; and positive girls’ & womens’ attraction towards the overall occupation of being a HomeMom. Without substantial assistance and change for HomeMoms, Gayle could not recommend being a HomeMom to her own daughters. Gayle’s thoughts echo Capt. Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger, III’s, testimony to Congress regarding the current conditions for professional Airline Pilots:

“I count myself fortunate to have spent my life in the profession I love, with colleagues whom I respect and admire.   But, honorable Representatives, while I love my profession, I do not like what has happened to it.  I would not be doing my duty if I did not report to you that I am deeply worried about its future…

…Members, I attempt to speak accurately and plainly, so please do not think I exaggerate when I say that I do not know a single professional airline pilot who wants his or her children to follow in their footsteps.     I am worried that the airline piloting profession will not be able to continue to attract the best and the brightest.”
