June marks the month that our youngest daughter came home to our family - while she was in our hearts forever, it was on June 2, 2006 that we all landed on US soil (very wet soil as it was raining so much in Atlanta, we wound up staying the night as the airport was pretty much shut down due to heavy rains). We celebrate it as Sisters Day - the day our girls were "officially" sisters.

We know because our children have both been in childcare settings - ranging from awesome to awful. By working with other RDIA and RDA members, this topic is going to be addressed on a national level, with practical applications at home. It'll take some time but we're working on it. If you have any daycare diaper stories - successes or opportunities - please pass them along to me.
