As a human being, Certified Attachment and Trauma specialist and parent I MUST speak out against the current administration’s policy of separating children and families.

Please read this article by the NASW:  https://www.socialworkers.org/News/News-Releases/ID/1654/NASW-says-plan-to-separate-undocumented-immigrant-children-from-their-parents-is-malicious-and-unconscionable

The seperation of children from their families can cause life-long developmental issues not to mention the immediate effects of toxic trauma on children, some of whom are infants.  This policy just cannot stand and must end NOW!

Our Executive Director’s recently co-authored book is available

Our Executive Director co-authored a book of Games and Activities designed to help parents and caregivers strengthen their attachments with their children.  The book can be purchased at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1849057958?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00.

From Jill, co-authoring this book was an amazing experience and I was very lucky to be part of an incredible group of women.  I look forward to similar projects in the future.

Great article for those who have or who are considering adopting trans-racially

I thought this article a very sweet example of how our children love us no matter what we look like even when the rest of the world may look at us askance.  It is also a reminder that often the simplest answer is the one our children are seeking and/or needing: https://medium.com/the-coffeelicious/the-day-my-daughter-discovered-i-m-white-8c2e41f35b14.
