We are not usually the type to sell our own press but… We are very excited to say we have been officially acknowledged by the California State Assembly, The US House of Reps and the LA City Council for our work with children.

We are so very full of joy at having started a Penpal/Artshare program between our children and the children of Integrated Bayouth Dreams in Uganda.
