Spend a lovely Saturday evening gliding around the Stony Brook wetlands; listening and exploring the ponds and marshes as day gives way to night. Sunset is a glorious time to be out in the wetlands and there is no better way to get close to the action than from a canoe. We’ll provide the canoes and equipment.

This was a great article written by Dr. Anne Paris. I love the ideas and tools she gives to use. I have all three of the Empathy Way books and can't wait to read them to my Grandkids so that they can become Caring Empathetic Children and later teens, which is so important, especially in this world we live in. I can't wait to see what Dr. Paris has for us next!
Thank you for raising awareness about the need for foster parents in Massachusetts. As an organization that also provides Intensive Foster Care, The Home for Little Wanderers has found that many people are unaware of the different types of foster care. We encourage anyone who is interested to learn more. Every child deserves a safe and loving home.
