  1. Welcome to the blog world, Bri. It's interesting that you ended up on my blog as we have so much in common. I grew up in Eliot ME, am a proud Marshwood Hawk graduate, and former competitive cheerleader in high school and college. I taught middle school for four years (social studies and language arts) before the adoption of our children. Our first two were born in Guatemala, and naturally being from Maine and connected to GC I am very drawn to the Safe Passage mission.
    Best wishes on your senior year at UMF and your upcoming nuptials. ~Beckie
