But she also made the wonderful discovery of how much babies have to tell us. Now she is passionate about helping families bond through clear communication before their babies can even speak.

Excellent!

It’s important for all of us to broaden our experiences, acceptance, and views of the world! Different does not equal bad. What a great way to explore how our differences can bring us closer and give us strength if we make the effort to understand and appreciate each other! Can’t wait to listen to more!
