Hot off the Press

From Our YMCA Water Park Membership Winner ~ 

staphanie_manaladoBeing new to the area, I quickly made the decision to find a resource to help me get to know the Fredericksburg area. I happened upon a copy of Fredericksburg Parent and Family at my children's school and was thrilled by all the information it provided to a newbie like me. I have since used the website on multiple occasions to find fun things to do with my kiddies and was even lucky enough to win one of the many giveaways!! We are so excited for our first summer in Fredericksburg and know just where to go to get some awesome places to visit!!

A little about me... I am a 37 year old mother of 3. We moved to Fredericksburg in October 2010 after living in NJ for most of my life. My husband and I were married in August of 2008 and were blessed with a baby boy in April 2009 (2 months premature and quite an ordeal!!). My hubby adopted my 2 children from my first marriage last summer and shortly thereafter we decided to move here to Virginia for my husband's job. It was a fresh start for our family and one I am thankful for everyday. I am new to the stay at home mom thing having been laid off from my job of 14 years shortly after giving birth to our son in 2009. I am so grateful for the friendships I have made and for the kindness and good fortune I have found here.

Thank You Fredericksburg Family & Parent and the Massad YMCA!

The foundation has helped 44 hospitals in 22 states through their Treasured Memories program. The program sends nurses to bereavement training, and provides or supplements the $55 memory boxes that include clothes, booties, handknot blankets, pictures, foot prints, hand prints, clipped hair and other mementos.
