It Takes a Village

It takes a village to raise a child.  Some may prefer to not be part of a village and do things as much as they can on their own, but when there is a desire to share, connect, and reach out to others, and allow them to become a part a child’s life, this creates opportunities for a new village to form. The new village can be a much stronger force of protection, possibility, education, and connections of love because it brings together more people's focused attention.  And what I learned in Chinese Medicine school is "where the attention goes, energy follows," so with this combined focused attention, there is going to be much more energy flowing, producing even stronger results. 

So meet the “Village People” we call “Team George”. 
Team George
This is the beginning of some folks wanting to contribute time, attention, love, energy, and support for a new addition on the planet, the Bambino, aka George.

There will be lots of additions to George's new village over time, but knowing there is an openness and willingness to allow many to share and be a part of this kids life journey is very comforting. It means there will be a continuing source of focused attention and energy, setting up a great foundation and opportunities for a balanced and meaningful life.
