Congratulations on becoming a new parent! You are about to embark on the most rewarding journey of your life.
We at the Virginia Paternity Establishment Program are excited to encourage both parents to be involved in raising their child and to become role models for others to follow. The resources provided throughout the programs website offer answers to many questions you may have concerning your child over the next twelve months. What is certain is that you cannot love your baby too much. So enjoy this first year. Babies who are held, hugged and cuddled grow up knowing they are safe and well-loved – and that may be the single most important gift any parent can give to a child.
