When Jackie Beck nursed her adopted 4-day-old baby boy for the first time, it was as nourishing for his soul as it was for his body. Jackie recounts the profound bonding experience with Heather Preece, founder of Kodiak KINDNESS, a program that offers free infant feeding support to families. Heather remarks that the moment was the highlight of her career. Edit credit: audio by Marina Preece Cummiskey; animation by RockitWorks
