  6. Hello from Australia I am new to this site, so its very nice to be here! I am so grateful for the resource that SWB has given to the world, its been holding my hand for a while now, and I finally made the plunge to take responsibility for my little girl. I bought alot of textbooks recommended from Amazon. Love Amazon. The books are amazing. Now down to the nuts and bolts.
