The Dark Matter of Love.

Nicole Milliren worked with the Diaz family using the Circle of Security therapy to help them understand the needs of their three new adoptedĀ children. This level of understanding surpasses the language barriers and went directly to what children need from their parent-no matter where in the world you are from.
