Ever move to a new location and find that it's super hard to find fun new things for your family to do? Maybe there is a language barrier that makes communication hard, or maybe you realized after moving just how hard it is to find new friends and playdates for the kids in your life.

The good news is that one Maine mom who has also struggled with those very things has worked her magic and mind to help other families struggling to make new connections.

According to the Sun Journal, Sara Lopez, originally of Columbia and now a Maine resident, has created a new phone app for families and businesses to connect.

The new App called Match2Play will help families connect with others who have similar interests, are local to the same communities, and even bridge language barrier gaps.

The business portion of Match2Play will offer family-focused events and discounts right thru the app; businesses of all sorts are encouraged to sign up!

This is a Maine exclusive app and will be available in the Google Play or App Store.
