In honor of our grandsons Owen, 9, and Bennett, 6

two beautifully attached little souls, perfect illustrations of what comes from attachment parenting.  Owen just created a beautiful website on "Peace," which he says is something very important to him.  And Bennett's teacher calls him "the moral compass of the classroom," always making sure everyone is treated fairly and kindly.
