Kate Alstadt

Kate is one of the co-owners of St. Louis Moms Blog. Her and her husband became "instant parents" a few years ago when they met and fell in love with their foster daughter and son. They moved in and filled their home with love, laughter and more kid things than they ever thought possible! They love visiting the many parks in St. Louis, and other attractions as a family of four, and hope that St. Louis Moms Blog can help highlight some of our favorite places in their city, all with an iced coffee in her hand! Kate's excited to share her unique experiences as a mother with others in St. Louis and hear from other moms as well.
