What parents are saying
“I have the first-time mom jitters. Instead of getting upset at myself or my daughter, Connections puts me at ease.”
“My daughter was slow at walking and Connections gave me so many different activities to do with her. I did them every day and by the end of the month, my baby girl was walking!”
“From the day I took my child home I asked myself, ‘What am I going to do?’ After receiving help from the Connections program, they taught me that everything would be okay, I’m a good mother, and that I’m doing well. They walked with me every step of the way to help my daughter reach those milestone moments in her life!”
