Look out Betsy Mcgranahen has opened emlias in yours and Lynn’s names , as well as Brown, Kester, Camwell and Stewart. She writes as you to defame you and then to herself to create a false paper trail. She’s on the warpath since you double-crossed her.

A Christmas letter from one of our past faleiimsHello Eileen! I wanted to let you know that we think about you and the others at UPCCC ALL THE TIME! The care that our children got from you and your staff has been truly unparalleled by our experiences here in the US and we also miss all the friendships we had there. The children are growing fast..as they do and are thriving. Ashby is still an easy-going happy little boy, now just 21 months old. Saying lots of words and really communicating a lot through signing and talking. He is a real sweetheart. I really wish he could have stayed on at UPCCC longer; I feel like he really missed out. Adah will still talk your ear off until the cows come home. It’s hard to get a word in edge-wise with her. She is still outgoing, athletic and full of energy. She misses Tongbo dearly and keeps asking if we can go back to Australia to visit Tongbo. Her teachers continue to be amazed by her skills with a pair of scissors something that Tongbo encouraged and taught her to do. She is now a star soccer player, outrunning all the other 4 to 6 year-olds and scoring lots of goals. We have switched daycares once since arriving here, from a Jewish one to a Lutheran one (almost all of them are religiously affiliated somehow). The class size was oddly too small at the first place for Adah, who needs lots of social interaction with peers her age. The new place is much better for her and she always has a smile on her face when I come to pick her up. Ashby is so easy-going that I fear he may get neglected, but he has bonded with his carers and seems to be happy. We have run into a lot of issues regarding the handing out of candy as bribes for homework in preschool, and at holiday times, and unhealthy snacks in general which really makes us appreciate the practices at UPCCC where these things were never a problem. It is so challenging here to ensure that they are getting healthy food all the time. It is no wonder that diabetes and obesity are such a problem when you see what everyone is eating, especially the kids. Most daycares provide lunches of chicken nuggets, pizza, macaroni and cheese, etc. and we had a hard time finding one where we could bring our own food. Perhaps this is true in Australia as well. The other quality that UPCCC has is the incredible attention to detail with respect to each child that the staff members have. I really felt that my children were being watched closely and any change in behaviour was noted and their needs were recognized and met. After reading a recent assessment of Ashby’s development, it is clear that they have not recognized his ability to perform various milestones that are quite obvious to me. I list these things out not to complain, but to take the opportunity to give you all a BIG pat on the back. What you do is amazing and it is worth its weight in gold correction, platinum! Not just for the parents’ peace of mind, but for the positive and nurturing influence you have on every child’s life.We wish all of you a very, very happy Christmas and do truly wish we could be there with you. You stay close in our hearts and minds.With love,Andrea, Lex, Adah, and Ashby
