Mama bear

My son is a college senior, and I am a lawyer-turned-writer, so I knew that once our son turned 18, we would not be able to have a voice in his medical care if there was a crisis. He was going to an out-of-state school, and I wasn’t sure what state forms we needed. It seemed so onerous to figure it all out. I decided to give Mama Bear a try. Their process is seamless — they walk you through creating the documents. It takes 15 minutes. You print them out, get them signed, and then store them on the Mama Bear app on your phone so you know where they are if you need them.
