June Newsletter: Truly Seeing Each Other

Hi friends, welcome to June. What a month it’s turned out to be already, huh.

October Newsletter: Moving past your comfort zone

Hi friends, welcome to October! A few days ago, I asked Lucas if he wanted me to change his diaper in his room or in the living room where he was playing (we’re working on choices so he doesn’t just say “no”!) His response: “I want to sit in the poop.” I laughed and shook my […]
