Hello! Today, you have the opportunity to hear from our two interns, Rachel and Brian. Both Rachel and Brian have been working at UDPL since the beginning of the summer and have been a huge help to the staff!

A baby’s young life can be full of milestones – first smile, first tooth, first solid food, first word and so on!

Although I'm back at UDPL this week, I was out on vacation for the first two weeks of May. The first thing everyone asked was, "Oh! Where are you going?" and I always answered honestly: my porch. Seriously, as a vacation destination, my porch is perfect: the travel time is negligible, the temperature is perfect, the beds

It is, as always, my pleasure and honor to acknowledge UDPL’s Teen Volunteers of the Year. This year’s recipients are especially close to my heart because they are part of the first group of students I’ve been able to watch throughout their entire high school career.  May 1st will be the four year anniversary of Cheri offering
