Artist. Mother of two. Wife. Owner of custom artwork shop Little Prints William. From Hoboken, New Jersey to England and then to South Africa, the last 12 months have been a whirlwind for Caroline Henderson (@nomadmummy). Exactly one year ago, Caroline was happily living with her husband and two children in Hoboken. She was under contract to purchase a family-size home and was prepared to spend the rest of her days in the mile square city when her husband lost his job and with it, the visa that permitted his family to remain in the United States.
So why is Caroline the Hoboken mom of the week if she no longer lives here? Because she exemplifies the best of Hoboken Moms. During and after Hurricane Sandy in the fall of 2012, Caroline selflessly opened her home to displaced residents. One of the first to get power back, she invited the entire community to her apartment to do laundry, take showers and get warm from the increasingly cold temps. Bonus? The kids could watch movies and be distracted from the natural disaster at home.

For her indomitable spirit in the face of adversity, kindness and selflessness in helping others, Caroline Henderson is the Hoboken mom of the week of October 7, 2013. We hope to see you again soon!
Teary eyed nursing a bottle of wine. I am heartbroken.There is no other explanation for it. Goodbye #Hoboken This won’t be the last time!
