The same is true for Pleasant Hill Cohousing. Once we had a member with children, other families joined. And now we have lots of families with kids. The original family did not actually move in, but they are still in touch with us.

* 32 units, 16 of which have children
* 47 adults
* 27 children (5 of whom were born in the last few months including the most recent addition - twins born on June 2!) - the oldest child is 14

The reason why Eno Commons is blessed with so many children is primarily
due to Jessie and her children.  Once she and her family joined, other
folks with children joined.
