Breastfeeding offers many health benefits to babies and provides just the right balance of nutrients to help an infant grow into a strong and healthy toddler. Infants that are breastfed, have fewer deaths during the first year and experience fewer illnesses, compared to babies which are formula fed.

At this time, my best friend was quitting her job at an in-home daycare in which my aunt owned and operated.
We’ve been dating for almost a month, not a long time but I needed a place to live. Since my mom kicked me out the house a month ago.

Darriane Newberry Period: 4 8-29-12 One event that had a huge impact on my life was when my best friend/ sister passed away in May of 2004. This took a big toll on my life. When my brother’s dad first told me I didn’t believe him, I didn’t want to believe him. So when my mom took me home, she looked up Robin’s name and read me her obituary.
