I love the picture of Lorraine kissing Clayton's cheek.  I made the shirt that he is wearing for my son, Derek, when he has a baby, and it made it's way around the family to the cousins.  I'm sure there are pictures of the different cousins wearing it.

I believe Raising the Children is a great program and I am so proud to be able to say that I was taught about it by Lorraine Kenny. I have attended many workshops throughout my career and by far, hers was the best. She made me feel warm, welcome, and accepted. She always referred to me by "Marvelous" Melinda even years after that workshop long ago. The name came from the Ice Breaker she had us do to get to know each other. She never forgot. She touched my heart every time she called me that. Little things make such a difference in a person's life. Lorraine knew how to do that. A wonderful lady, I'll never forget.

We can all learn from the training program themes and messages about love and sharing and community. Thanks for making this wonderful resource available. I remember running into Lorraine at the Sioux Lookout airport where she had just returned, tired but happy, from giving a parenting workshop in a remote northern community. She gave all of herself to something she believed in with great passion.

It's great to see Lorraine's passion for healthy parenting and healthy kids continue through Raising the Children. Lorraine was an awesome kid herself.
