PAIL Featured Post:

  • Josey presented our PAIL Blogger Featured Post this week – “waiting room,” by Em of Teach Me to Braid. She talks about TTC#2 and the feelings of being back in the waiting room at the RE’s office – just wishing and hoping that we all felt comfortable enough to reach out and support one other in that space. Em likens it to the support that marathoners give each other during a race – this post is definitely worth a read!
