Iowan's rejoice! We've recently been awarded the third best state in an outstanding category. We rank third in the nation for child well-being. CAN I GET A WHOOP WHOOP?! According to the Annie E. Casey foundation Iowa also ranks 2nd in economic well-being and top ten in three other areas!

Micheal Crawford the director of Iowa Kids Count believes that rank is bestowed onto us because of our dedication to our kids and families. Accessing affordable healthcare for families is a necessity and maintaining this level of care should be emulated and continued indefinitely. Seems as if we have a bit of swagger to strut.

All jokes aside, thank you for being wonderful parents! Its the toughest job in the world, and that's just being one. It's even harder to be a good at it. Keep up the outstanding work.
