Just a brief note to say how much I enjoyed the training day. There was lots of opportunity for participation. We had a very nice, mixed group of people which helped a lot and Kim was excellent as she managed to mix audience participation and what she had to say, so well. I feel that I got a lot out of it.Adoptive parent
