Child Abuse Effects dot com Information: Gone for a Week

by Darlene Barriere – Webmaster
( Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada)

Information: I'll be gone for about  a week

Information: I'll be gone for about a week

To My Valued Visitors: 
I will be away for about a week in order to attend a college speaking conference in Los Angeles. My flight leaves early Wednesday morning, December 2, 2009, and I'm not expected back until next week. Given the all-day format of the conference, I will have only a tiny window of opportunity to dedicate to my site during this time. Therefore, comments from visitors to other contributors, as well as any new submissions, may take much longer to get published. I hope that won't dissuade you in any way from offering your encouraging and supportive comments to others, or from submitting your stories. I will post them when I can. Also, when I do post new submissions—if there is time to actually post new submissions, that is—I will not be able to offer any comments. I thank you so much for your understanding.


P.S. I will do my best to post something about how the conference is going on my Facebook page each day. You can follow me by clicking on the link provided below. Hope I'll "see" you in cyberspace.
