This Week's Special Opportunity


I've been reading a lot of adoption blogs lately....hearing other people's stories does so much for giving courage to my own heart.  Clicking from one link to another led me to another great organization that has a heart for orphans, Ethiopia & adoptive families - Ordinary Hero. They do local outreaches, advocate for children waiting to be adopted and lead missions trips to Africa. You can read can read more about what they do at their blog HERE

They offer a similar fundraising service to adoptive families as Just Love Coffee.  So, for those of you who don't like coffee, the Ordinary Hero Store sells all kinds of cool t-shirts, hat,s bags and travel mugs.  The cool thing is that 40% of all purchases that come through our referral goes toward our adoption expenses!

Plus - they've got a special adoption grant offer just this week.  They are offering an additional $500 grant to the top 3 sales affiliates.  The grant offer is only good for sales this coming week - so we decided we needed to jump on this opportunity and see what becomes of it.

Choose "Scott & Lori Florida" from the affiliate pull-down menu when you check out!  Thanks!

If you like cool t-shirts and if you like using your purchasing power to support causes you care about, read about this awesome organization and get yourself something new to wear!  Once again, we appreciate your support.....and we promise not to post a new fundraiser every day from here on out!!

We would love it if you would share both this post and the coffee fundraiser post as often as you like!  Thanks - we'll keep you posted!!

Here's just a sample of what you'll find at the Ordinary Hero Store...










Thanks!!

We've Seen Their Faces!!

Ready to have your mind blown?   Have we got a referral story for you!  It's a like a book with a plot that sucks you in right from the start, leaving you gritty-eyed from endless "just-one-more-chapter" nights.  You mean to put the book down and sleep like a normal person...but then the last paragraph of each chapter makes your eyes go wide and steals all willpower except for the "page turning" kind.  One twist in the plot after another that you COULDN'T SEE COMING....twists that are the best satisfaction a plot could offer.  It's better than what you hoped was coming and leaves you amazed at the writer's craft.  Ever read a book like that?? I have.  I LOOOVE them.  The past few weeks have shown me that I SUPER LOOOOVE living that kind of plot!
A good story has to start at the beginning.....Once upon a time, God stirred our hearts in an undeniable way and called us to respond to His orphaned children by making a few of them Floridas.  We gulped, s…

Cabin Fever - Day 12

Anyone starting to feel the tell-tale signs that come along with the cooler temperatures....the ache in your bones, the niggling in the back of your brain, the growing sensation that you might have to scream soon?  Dr. Lori can diagnose your situation.....it's the early stages of a very common preschool Mom malady....


cabin fevernoun:  extreme irritability and restlessness from living in isolation or a confined indoor area for a prolonged time






If you're not feeling it yet, file this RX for future use.  And don't think you're off the hook, you southern moms.....hurricanes are coming and the flu germ is no respecter of persons.  If you aren't feeling the symptoms, chances are good that one of your little people will come down with cabin fever and if you don't deal with it quickly, it'll spread like wildfire.  Moms everywhere need to be ready for an outbreak.

I've learned two most effective treatments for cabin fever  from Pa Ingalls.   Remember the year …

A Cup of Cold Water for Thirsty Mommas - Day 1

For the first time in nearly 20 years....I. Don't. Have. A. Preschooler.  Picking out gym shoes and putting a backpack on Ginger has put me in a reflective mood.  It's obvious that she's ready to begin school .....the question is, am I? 

The truth is, it's been an awesome run.  I'm incredibly grateful that I have been able to spend these years at home focused on soaking up the first years of my kids' lives.  I have loved being the one who teaches them colors, how to take turns during board games, why it's polite to use a tissue instead of a sleeve and being able to pass on my awesome Thriller dance moves.  It was an intentional choice that Scott and I made, right at the beginning, to order our little world in such a way that I could focus on being a mom.

You see, I believed my mom.  She told me to listen to what I've heard about women being able to have it all and do it all.  She told me to dream about a career, dream about being a mom, dream about ho…
