I'm really happy that you're taking the initiative too! Keep finding those
audiences! :)

I may not be the best for follow up on the kids right now... I've just begun
working with them. But perhaps you were thinking in the future once you
were settled into your house. By then I should have some experience ;)
If you would like other's accounts, there's a pile of folks who've worked
with / work with kids within NANFA. Rob Denkhaus and Jan Hoover are two
that come to mind quickly. I'm sure they'd be glad to give you the input
you're looking for, regardless of wether or not I can provide any help.

This is probably information that could be collected from its respective
human repositories and put on the NANFA website for members... But we'll get
to that... ;)
