Hey Family,

When I was pregnant with my two children, I basked in my emerging motherhood glow. I floated through air, haughtily laughing whenever my babies fluttered about in my belly.

Then I had them and reality set in.

Luckily for us, we had family close by who were able (and willing) to take care of my children while my husband and I worked until they started school. Other families don’t fare so well.

I started this program a little over a year ago looking at the tough choices families make when they don’t have adequate help in childcare and I am happy to have Rasheed Malik, Policy Analyst at the Center for American Progress on the program again for a follow up to talk about the recent study that looks at 22 states and what they call “Child Care deserts”  You’d be surprised by what we found out.

As always, tune in to Enlighten Me on WERA-FM 97.6 FM every Wednesday from 4-5p ET or check us out online at Facebook.com/EnlightenMeonWERA or on Twitter @EnlightenMeWERA @andreacambron.
