Welcome!

"It is our very innocence as parents, our freshness and inexperience, that redeems us. With each new family, nature has another chance. Another chance for happy accidents that can change the course of history. Another chance for amateurs to do something no one else has ever done before. Another chance for genius."

-Peggy O'Mara, Publisher and Editor of "Mothering Magazine"

Welcome to the Hudson Valley Parents website. We're glad you're here! We are a group of families (with children of all ages, or soon-to-be through pregnancy and adoption) who live in, or are connected to, the beautiful Hudson Valley region of New York State, including Ulster, Dutchess, Orange, Sullivan, and Westchester Counties. Our purpose is to enable members to coordinate local activities and discuss parenting issues.

"Hudson Valley Parents" was originally known as the "New Paltz Playgroup" which began in 2003 when a few of us were encouraged to exchange phone numbers and e-mails after a local La Leche League meeting. Until our initial playgroup gatherings, many of us did not know any other people in the area with a baby and felt very isolated as new parents. As our membership has grown (from 8 people to over 1000 and counting!), this community network has evolved from a personal e-mail list, to a Yahoo! group, and now we're our own official website and forum.

The site's owners are full-time Hudson Valley residents, Erica and Michael Chase-Salerno, proud parents of Declan and Quinlan.

Please contact us if you have any questions.

We are really looking forward to this Sunday's 9/20 Hudson Valley Parents.com Fall Fest '09! We have a fantastic charity to support, lots of terrific penny social prizes to win, our new logo to unveil, great music, yummy baked goods for sale, a variety of children's activities, and a chance to connect "off-line" with fellow Hudson Valley Parents and their families. This year's featured HVP Fall Fest charity is St. John Bosco Child & Family Services.

Testimonials

I'm particularly impressed by the diversity of opinion on the site; there are parents of all ages and backgrounds connecting in ways that can't be duplicated in any other context. I've made dear friends who I never would have met otherwise, and reconnected with old friends who are now parents, too. It's a wonderful way to find stuff, share information, discuss parenting topics (and much more!) openly and unreservedly. I am constantly learning more about our little critters, what makes them tick, and what resources are available in our community to help them grow up happy. Thanks, Erica & Mike!
