This is just a quick blurb about an organization a local photographer started and I just think word of it needs to be spread.
So many of you are such good photographers and have such a gift. I know many of you have come across families in need and wondered what you could do to help.

MMMMMM! My kitchen smells so good! I know this is really going to come as a surprise to so many who know me, but I have been cooking!

However, parents of physically challenged children have to be especially creative to make sure that their young people learn the daily life skills that they need to be self-sufficient. Occupational…

Values are part of a framework of defined and given boundaries. In order for you to…
