NPN volunteer blog party!

Visit Natural Parents NetworkI have been been volunteering for awhile now at Natural Parents Network. All the volunteers in this incredible network are so amazing and I'm happy to be a part of this group, even though I'm having a hard time speaking up and being an active member of the group right now.
