Oh.. and on finding like minded moms.. good luck again. When I was up there I found ONE mom who had cloth diapered her kids (all grown now) and she was the lady I bought my milk from.. Lets just put it this way. Blue Ridge and Ellijay have the highest teen pregnancy ratings in the south east, mixed with the highest meth usage ratings in the south east... so finding people who are like minded will be a task. I have no doubt they are there.. just wont be as many as yo might be used too. I fostered for years out there, so maybe I just saw mostly bad parenting and def a lack of attachment parenting..walking through the local walmart will prove that its mostly people who bottle prop, kids in buggies wearing nothing but a sagging sposie diaper and 5 year olds with pacis in their mouths, mountain dew in the baby bottles, kids with rotted out teeth from soda and junk food and lack of hygeine and teen girls with their preggo bellies hanging out and their boyfriends spitting chew in their beer cans and using the most fowl language you have ever heard. Heck.. Ive seen these kids out after hours in the parking lots with their babies still in the bucket seats.. on top of the car with a bottle propped up while their moms are hanging with her friends and paying the baby no attention at all.
Like I said.. Im sure there are some and I probably have a sour look on the area bc I got the kids in my house all of the time from these parents... but it was a HUGE reason we left the area.
