Helen Spencer

Mum, step-mum and Founder of family-stories-on-a-timeline website www.saveeverystep.com.<br /> <br /> Forty-something with a house full of kids between ages of 23 and 4, and pets. Oh, and also builders and dust.<br /> <br /> Passionate about the preservation of family memories for the future.<br /> <br /> Inspired by the loss of my mom and the discovery that I was pregnant with my youngest son. Life-changer. He would never know this incredible woman, and if I wasn't careful, my kids would also know nothing about my life or our times together during their young years when they grow up and I'm gone.<br /> <br /> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.saveeverystep.com" target="_blank">www.saveeverystep.com</a> is my salvation and the potential solution for every family to create a personal time-vault of their memories, in chronological order.<br />
