This one’s for you. Oh, they all are. This whole blog is for you because you deserve attention, care, and nurturing, just as much as your children from difficult beginnings. See you in the New Year! Remember the only person you can change is yourself: BE HAPPY.
P.S. By popular demand, The Attach Place has a new online scheduling system with appointment reminder emails. You can still call to make an appointment, but some folks prefer more streamlined access. There it is. Feel free to use it.

Reminder: Strictly Social Autism Spectrum Disorder Night for Tweens (11 yrs – 16 yrs) at The Attach Place. January 19, 2018 from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm. Gluten-free snacks provided. Please RSVP to Andrea@attachplace.com so we get enough snacks, right? This is a monthly social group for the children; and caregivers will have an opportunity to connect, chat, and chill in a separate space. A donation of $0.00 to $5.00 will be accepted for food and supervision if you are able, but please don’t let that be an attendance barrier because the group is FREE. ASD kids need a social life and this is a great way to make it happen.

If you haven’t responded to the Capital Adoptive Family Alliance (California residents only) survey about needs you have for your family while raising adopted children, here is the link. Fill it out now! That is my way of encouraging everyone to answer the survey questions to the best of your ability. You can skip anything that you don’t want to answer. This is a way to get funding channeled to adoptive parents. Super special opportunity for all of us adoptive families who need financing for services.
