Social worker, case manager, advocate, friendly face, interested listener, teacher, health care provider. Saint. These are but some of the "faces" of the two providers I followed during the Visiting Nurse Association of Chittenden and Grand Isle Counties' Community Visits program.

My partner, Dana, and my son, Ezra, and I were sitting around at my mom's house eating dinner. My cousin had just had a baby, so the discussion moved to how hard it is to transition into the role of being a parent, even if it is something you have planned and wanted and dreamed of for a long time. Being a dad to Ezra has intensified every aspect of my life - I have reached levels of joy, love and peace I had never imagined possible.
