Hot off the Press

This weekend our FredParent editor, our Facebook Community Co-Manager and their 3 month old son were victims of a house fire and they have been left with virtually nothing.   Fortunately everyone is safe but now they must begin the arduous task of rebuilding.  We are thrilled to have local groups volunteer their support, including MommyTraders and Wiggle Worms.  Stay posted, more ways to help are in the works.

  • Mommy Trader Movement has organized a community-wide drive for baby items and other household items for the Jones family. Wiggle Worms at the Spotsylvania Towne Centre is generously sponsoring a play day to benefit the family as well. Please visit their Facebook Page for more information
  • Wiggle Worms Family Play Time to Benefit the Jones Family  Join us this Friday, September 9 between 10am and 12pm for only $5 a family. All proceeds to benefit the Jones Family who lost everything in a fire over the weekend. The Jones Family plans to be here, so come out and show them your love and support! Mommy Traders will be here as well so you can see firsthand how Awesome they are! You can find Wiggle Worms on Facebook or on their website.

Pouches' Community Corner

Adoptive parents in Fredericksburg now have a new partner on their journey to a healthy family. In 2016, Children’s Home Society was awarded a $125,000 grant from the Virginia Department of Social Services to extend their Richmond area post-adoptive services to the Fredericksburg area.


Now CHS is looking to find adoptive families in the area who need support before they hit a crisis point. “It doesn’t matter which agency they adopted from, or when that happened,” said Buckheit. “We want to offer a lifetime of support to adoptive families in the Fredericksburg area, especially those who haven’t been aware of our services in the past.”
