Adoption FAQ #5: Boy or Girl?

July 5, 2011

We really struggled with this decision. I mean REALLY struggled. We originally said we were open to either gender. How could we choose?

Adoption FAQ #4: Now that you’re pregnant, why are you STILL adopting?

How YOU can change OUR world…

November 22, 2010

Early last week I asked the question, “How are YOU changing the world?” And really, there wasn’t a correct answer. The answers you gave were beautiful. And you are—-changing the world that is. Even those of you that thought “Hmm, the only thing I’ve done today is wipe bottoms and put food in front of a […]
