Building a support system is an important part of building a healthy family.
For newcomers that means making new friends, which can be hard to do in a new town.
Carrie and Matt Stone moved to Los Alamos from Juneau, Ak, in November.
Carrie has a 6-year-old son and an 8-month-old daughter.
She began coming to the Thursday support group at Family Strengths Network for mothers of infants as soon as she heard about it.
“Our Realtor told us about Family Strengths, and I’ve met several other newcomers here,” she said.
