Top 10s

Color us crazy, but we think setting goals is one of the best parts of ringing in the new year! Everything feels so fresh, new, and full of possibility. There are a few little tricks we know to help achieve goals. Here are three big ones... Make them measurable, realistic, and tell others about them. That last part is where you all come in. Studies have shown that if you tell others about your goal, your chances are of success are higher. Let's call it a little bit of good peer pressure. Feel free to join in the fun by commenting here or on Facebook/ Twitter/ Instagram with your goals, too!

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.”
