Parenting at a Distance
Staying in touch with the children who live in your heart but not in your home.
    As a bipolar mother I will never have custody of my children. That is the hardest thing I had to accept. Parenting at a Distance helps me send them activities that will help them remember me with some happy memories. I am getting better and they are getting older. Some day there will be an opportunity for us to sit together. I will tell them how much joy I found in putting together their projects and I hope they will be able to tell me how much they enjoyed my efforts. Really a good book. Meghan Morris --Letter to the publisher

    Parenting at a Distance, has been a great resource for me. At first the mother of my son didn't want to help me communicate with the kids. The fact that I had a plan for contact with them and was consistent won her over. I think she gets as much a kick out of the seeing what will be in the next package as the boys do. Ken Richards --Weekend Fathers Newsletter.

We are against those who victimize children and adults by making anonymous, malicious and false allegations of child abuse.

Couples are given the opportunity to look at themselves, privately with their partner in an honest, face-to-face, heart-to-heart encounter.

    Engaged Encounter, is a weekend experience designed to help couples prepare personally and as a couple for marriage. The focus is on the marriage, not on the wedding. "A wedding is a day ... a marriage is a lifetime." Couples are shown communication and decision-making techniques they can use throughout their lifetime together. Engaged Encounter is specifically designed for quiet reflection and discussion by each couple. It is a positive, simple, common-sense experience between two people who are either seriously considering engagement, engaged or recently married. At no time will the couple be asked to share their private experiences with the group.

Pro Bono Programs:
    One way to find a lawyer to provide free legal representation in civil cases is by contacting a pro bono program -- also known as volunteer lawyer programs. Pro bono programs are operated by state, county or local bar associations; by legal services programs; by other agencies in the community or independently. They use local attorneys who have agreed to provide free legal representation to eligible persons referred by the pro bono program. There are tens of thousands of attorneys throughout the country who volunteer their services through these programs.
