Hello everyone! Thanks to you all for your words of encouragement and congratulations.  We’ve received so many emails, calls, tweets, and shout-outs on Facebook in the past 24 hours that our hearts are overflowing with joy and gratitude.

Nicole & Kim

Before we get too far into this venture, we thought we’d tell you a little more about us so that you know who has taken the reigns behind the scenes.  Both of us are located in north-central Brooklyn, have two kids under age 4 and work full-time.  We met each other when we were on maternity leave after our first children were born.  It wasn’t until then that either of us really knew how amazing the Brooklyn parenting community is.  Within weeks of giving birth, we had formed part of a close-knit group of first-time moms, and were there to support each other through all the challenges of motherhood.  When we shared our stories of the parenting community we’d found here in Brooklyn with friends and family in other parts of the country, we quickly realized that what we have here is something unique and special. It’s the dedication that our fellow Brooklynites have to developing community that was the inspiration behind our pursing A Child Grows.

We are very fortunate to have Karen’s guidance through this transition.  As she mentioned yesterday, we have spent the better part of the past four days learning the ins-and-outs of how this all works, and she has been so patient with us.  It may take us a few weeks to ramp up to the point in which we have a well-oiled machine in operation, so we ask for your patience as well.  Our goal is to maintain the same eco-parenting vibe with lots of local flavor.  We intend to plan more meet-ups and will without a doubt continue to provide the comprehensive roundup of weekend activities in Brooklyn and NYC.  But perhaps the most exciting thing we have on our agenda is the 2013 Brooklyn Baby Expo!  As soon as we have confirmation on the date, you’ll be the first to know!

Kim Janulewicz

Please feel free to send us your ideas and suggestions for blog topics and meet-ups.  You can reach us directly at kim@achildgrows.com and nicole@achildgrows.com.  If you have events you’d like to include in our calendar or Weekend Picks, please send them to events@achildgrows.com.

We are so excited to start this new chapter in our lives and look forward to meeting you!

  5. Dear Ladies,
    I just wanted to congratulate you and also send you the very best wishes for a successful, rewarding and exciting new venture with A Child Grows. Karen is my sister and I have watched the birth of this wonderful resource. In the process, I realized how special Brooklyn is as a community of women and parents and happily saw how it positively impacted Karen’s life. I applaud you both and am so excited to watch A Child Grows with “new parents”. Cheers to you both and may you experience great success in all things!
    Warmly, Elizabeth Pruett
