March Forth!
Note From Julie and Tom
Dear One,

Our parent love message to you today:

PAUSE: Take a minute. Look at your child. What do you see? Do you see how incredibly precious this child is?

POTENTIAL: When your child is struggling emotionally, physically, nutritionally, behaviorally, or in any other way, look for POTENTIAL. Look beyond their NOW and focus on their TOMORROW. This will effect everything you think, say, and do in life.

Amy's Great Opportunity:
When we see our children's potential rather than their DISabilities, opportunities can open up for them that we could never imagine. Our Amy had the thrill of a lifetime by auditioning, being accepted, and participating as a cast member of the Virginia Christmas Spectacular's production Overnight Christmas. Here are photos of her in costume.

PEACE: Did you open this eZine Newsletter because you are looking for peace? Wonderful! The theme for this eZine is PEACE. Be sure to keep reading all the way to the end to pick up some awesome tips for incorporating more peace.

Always know, dear one, that you are not alone. You are on an incredible journey. It is confusing, sometimes excruciating, often difficult but it is also the most rewarding thing you will ever do. There is unspeakable joy available to you in this adventure. Look for it.

We love you,
Tom and Julie
