Marnie’s Reference

(Photo: Alan with Marnie’s son) Here’s another reference from a friend: Please describe how they act towards children: They are excited to spend time with our children!

Monthly WOMEN OF COLOR Gathering

Once a month, I have the honor of HOSTING A WOMEN OF COLOR gathering in our office space and tonight is this month’s meeting, which makes me smile.

Sometimes some of the children of my friends tag along, too, and I like to see them play or draw in the space Read more »
