Kia Ora koutou/Greetings everyone!

Here we are in Term 2! I hope the school holidays brought some relief from your busy routines and the chance to enjoy some family/whanau time.

Mother’s Day is on Sunday 12 of May and what a good excuse for the opportunity of some self-care. Perhaps a ‘self-appreciation’ day alongside the thoughts and appreciation from those around you. Valuing yourself is a gift too. I think this little picture captures what parenting children in our care develops in you. 

Nga mihinui/many thanks to those of you in Gisborne, Wairoa and Napier who came along to the Discussion Sessions last month. There were some wonderfully lively korero/discussions around Access and Contact, FASD, Living & Working with Traumatised Children.  I so appreciate your contributions to these kanohi te kanohi/face to face get togethers.  We all learn off each other!
