  5. Hi Nancy –

    I’m in Mountain View and could definitely do a weekly call this summer. I’m due with my second baby in September, so I’m not sure what my availability will be around the time of the birth, but I will be on leave through January and would be able to meet in person if you are interested after the dust has settled. My family configuration is a bit different from yours – I have a 26 mo. girl and expecting a boy. You can email me at if you are interested.

  6. I’m in Brisbane, Australia. I run study groups in person as well as over the phone. Email me for more info if you like!
