Hi! We just moved here two months ago from a progressive community in the Chicago suburbs, and I'm feeling kind of lost in Auburn. (We came sight-unseen, and we're renting a home our realtor chose for us in Lakeland Hills). We try to live really simply (delayed vaxing, homeschool, no television, quiet religious life), and I don't know the first place to meet people who have the same values of simplicity that we do. Add to that, I just found out I'm pregnant with our fourth (!) and need a midwife and doula recommendation! I'm happy to socialize with lots of different kinds of people, but, being new, I'm getting kind of weary of having to defend our choices to homeschool, eating healthy, etc etc [fill in the blank].
Any suggestions?! Since we're renting, we have the freedom to move to a different area too, if that would help. DH's new job is in Federal Way, so as long as it's driving distance from there, I'd be up for it to be in a community somewhat like the one we left in Illinois.
