May Newsletter | A Month of Celebration

Dear Friends,

As a mom of a daughter who is graduating from high school, I am celebrating the profound journey of parenthood this month. Like building a home, being a parent requires love and adaptability. Cheers to the parents whose children graduate and embark on new paths. May this month be a testament to your devotion.
