I'm in CT. I have a 2yo PA child. I have not gone to the west hartford group because the traffic going that direction from me at that time is horrible. I hear it is good. What area of CT are you in?

Darien is next to Stamford, close to NY. I have not been to a meeting yet. I have heard of them, but don't know how far away it is from me either. & My husband's work schedule makes attending things difficult, as well.

I'm not in CT, but at a FAAN conference I met several people from a very active group in Fairfield (or possibly Bridgeport).

Southbury is off I84 near Newtown & Middlebury. About an Hour from Darien and probably an hour+ to Norwich (is that near Glastonbury??)
