Nancy and all,
Welcome and congratulations on your persistence in finding your way here. Sounds like you are a multi-talented and experienced person. You obviously have a capacity to dream and vision important callings in your life. Your passion for helping kids living in these tough situations is a great foundation. While you will not learn word for word things to say, you will find a great deal of help in how to respond in helpful ways.
Hope the others will join us soon.
