Families First: Tell us a little about yourself.
Judi Remondi: My husband, Jack, and I live in Needham with our two children, Adam and Lilly. We are a far-flung family with a hectic schedule! My husband works full time in Delaware, and my children commute daily to their school in Providence, RI.
FF: As a mother, what is most challenging for you?
Judi: Being a single mom all week definitely has its challenges. Having done it for the last 8 years, I now have huge respect for single parents.
FF: How did you become involved with Families First?
Judi: I didn’t know much about the organization before I went to a Gathering, but I was extremely impressed with the content and the information that was shared. I have also been very impressed with the leadership at the organization. My husband and I really look at that when we’re deciding whether to get involved.
FF: What would you tell someone who was just finding out about Families First?
Judi: Although it brings much joy, raising a family is very stressful no matter how many or how few resources you have. Families First is providing a vital service in trying to help parents navigate this journey of parenthood. It’s important to have support, information, and a network of peers who understand. Anything you can do as a parent to help your children grow into happy, well-adjusted, productive adults is worth exploring!
