Dear all,

Thank you so much for welcoming me so warmly at PACK Coffee Connection. I had a great time speaking with all of you. The AC community is so lucky to have such enthusiastic parents who come together regularly to share and connect.

As promised, I wanted to follow up with a couple of articles and resources that I thought pertained to our discussions, which are included below this message. Please feel free to share this list with other parents who might be interested.

Thank you again for having me!
