Reasons for deletion should be discussed here, before this page is possibly deleted. I don't believe a page should be deleted if the proponents of deletion cannot even put in the time or energy to explain the reasons supporting deletion.
I'm opposed to deletion, because (1) how will anything on Wikipedia ever grow if everything is deleted at first creation? and (2) the topic is relevant to the entire Bay Area, which is a significant number of people. Although called the Berkeley Parents Network, BPN is not a random, insignificant source, and it should be remain in the encyclopedia. — Emiellaiendiay 05:09, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

- Earlier this month, Maria was feeling desperate: alone at home with two young children and a husband who worked all hours, she was sleep-deprived and depressed.
