The MAC candidates’ town hall meeting in Guerneville went very well. There was a total of 28 people running for district positions. It was great to see such a turnout of people willing to volunteer and serve, and to serve for the greater good, not just for their individual district. It’s a sign of our changing demographics and it’s awesome that we have reached this place.

What if you were able to have a brand-new family practically overnight? What if you were able to have two sets of families? I have had the most incredible experience recently. I was adopted at birth in NYC and I’m 61 years old. A family friend told me when I was a teenager that all she knew was that a young teenager from a well-to-do family became pregnant and her name was Edith Costello. She had to give me up for adoption.
