subbing in for Nov...
Sarah, Adelaide is gorgeous! you have great pics. Hope things start smoothing out with your oversupply issues, a LLL leader might have more ideas for you, have you been in contact with anyone? You can also pm me if you like.
Jenni, sending you many happy birthin' vibes!
As far as what's involved in LLL-- to start a group, you need to be a leader. To apply to be a leader, you need to have met certain prereqs, namely having nursed your baby for at least a year, be a member of LLL, and endorse mothering in a way consistent with LLL philosophy (if you're on mdc, you're probably fine
). Then you can go through the accreditation process, which is mostly self study and reflection, and learning about LLL, leading meetings, etc with a Leader and a member of the Leader accreditation dept. This can be done via phone, email, snail mail, whatever, so it's not a problem if you don't have a leader in your area to work with. If you have more questions (or if ANYONE has more questions!) please PM me and I can get you more info and contacts. Rural Alaska definitely needs more Leaders!!
We're starting to get settled in to our rental. Closing on the 12th--can't wait! DD1 is having her party tomorrow, I can't believe she's 9
