A bit about me...

Hi aLLL...

My name is Erin. I live, work and play in BEAUTIFUL Burlington, Ontario, Canada. I have two gorgeous boys who were exclusivley breastfed until somewhere in the second half of their first year (the younger one later then the older one)... Mitchell is now 11 (he nursed until he was 3 yrs and 10 months) and Joshua will be turning 7 on the day I leave the conference (he nursed until he was 4 .5 years old).

I am originally from the United States but have lived in Canada for the past 27 years. I am thrilled to be in Washington DC over the 4th of July! I became a member of LLL 11 years ago, I was accredited as a Leader just about five years ago and currently co-lead a Group and also answer online Help Forms. I was a DA for 3 years.

I will be helping to "man" the Canadian table at the World Faire, and I am organizing the quilt square exchange. I am looking forward to meeting my online friends and putting names to faces, making new friendships, reuniting with old friends, and being surrounded by hundreds of LLL people who support the parenting choices I have made. Oh yeah, and the chocolate -- and of course, getting my baby-fix!!

I am pleased to say that I am one of the Canadian affiliates who received a scholarship to attend the Conference... thank you very much!!
