IF, or www.internationalfamilymag.com, our introductory online magazine, was started from a simple idea. The idea of IF is that everyone in the world regardless of religious affiliation, ethnic background, sexuality or politics wants a safe and loving home at the end of the day. Maybe this common place could be a starting point for connecting with one another.

Our online magazine IF hopes to be informative, identifying and humorous to those caregivers across the globe who work hard to create family in our lives. It will be published in at least three global languages each issue. It will contain articles of interest, international factoids or Ifs, arts and humor, product coupons and consumer information, expert advice, a global directory for networking purposes and other interactive elements.

Whether a mother, father, sister, brother, aunt, uncle, cousin, or grandmother and grandfather. Whether in Korea, Argentina, India, America, or England. Whether single or single parenting, multi-cultural, gay or traditional – all people want to believe in the sanctity of their home life.

Mission Statement
And so, our simple mission:

If we could see all humans as our extended family.

If we could recognize our oneness in the desire for a safe, loving home.

If we could see caregivers as superheroes.

If we could honor both chaos and dignity.

     
Cat WaylandDear IF family,

The idea of family for me has always had a very loose definition. I was a newborn who was an orphan, a foster child and an adopted child all within the first two weeks of my life. My adoptive family numbered five and none of us were biologically related. Although I was told we were American, we lived in the U.K. until I was six. Our family was mixed North American and European with a very blond and tan, Swedish sister, a very dark eyed and large Black Irish brother, a blue-eyed father and a very petite, pale, pixie doll of a red hair mother. Family was then, people who stayed nearby and offered you love. I like life this way. It is simple and full. I look forward to meeting everyone of you from every five of the other continents.

Good Blessings,
Catherine Wayland
Founder, Managing Editor, B.A., M.A., M.S.
