CARE ABOUT GLOBAL CHILD MORTALITY
*Take 6 minutes of your time to educate yourself about global child mortality.  This weekend world leaders are coming together to renew their pledge to give every child a 5th birthday.  There are so many organizations you can join to help in this fight....you probably already have connections to one you know and trust that are feeding and providing medical care to children in poor countries.  If you don't, use the Ordinary Hero link in the right side bar to buy a goat or sheep to feed children in Ethiopia or Uganda.  They have teams going to deliver the animals to families this summer!  If you choose our name in the affiliate menu at checkout, a donation will be made to our adoption fund as well!

Why 5th B-Day?




World Pledges to End Childhood Preventable Deaths



LEARN THE FACTS ABOUT HIV+ CHILDREN & ADOPTION
*The average American's knowledge about HIV hasn't changed since the 80's even though medicine has advanced by leaps and bounds!  Many children looked over for adoption are purely victims of ignorance!  Don't be average....educate yourself and others so these children can find families!

Martin Luther King Jr. said, “Faith is taking the first step even when you can't see the whole staircase.”   Sometimes taking the first step is as easy (and as tasty) as buying a frosty and facing the facts through a youtube video!  If we all do something,  the top of the staircase won't seem so far away anymore.

The Best Gift a Mother Can Give - The Glorious Table

The wind blew as we gathered around the graveside, and I watched this large, beautiful family say goodbye to their beloved grandmother. There was sadness and there were tears, but the most striking thing was the togetherness laced in, around, and among every emotion and experience of the day. Watching this family, buoyed by their togetherness, prompted a light bulb moment and sent my mind traveling back to my first wrestling match with a big  mom fear . “How can I possibly love my second baby as much as my first?” “Is there enough of me for both of them?” “Will having another baby rob the ones I already have of what they deserve?” I had heard it said that the best gift you can give your child is a sibling. My oldest was only nine months old when I found out number two was going to join our family sooner than my master plan called for. I felt I was just beginning to get my “mom sea legs” and being a mom to two was a bigger challenge than I could get my head around. Everything felt like

The Fight for Control - Day 3

Preschoolers' bodies contain a power that defies the laws of physics.  Moms of preschoolers know there is definitely something metaphysical going on in their homes.  It's also clear to Moms like me that every now and then, a special child comes along with whom the force is especially strong. I had a cute little 3-year-old boy who often left me slack-jawed and feeling outflanked.  His will was strong and it was aided and abetted by a deft use of words and logic.  Maybe you've encountered a kid like him.....you can recognize them by the iron glint in their eyes and the furrowed brows of their Mommas.  Maybe you've got one living under your own roof. Even though it felt like Trevor and I jockeyed for position forever...but it was really just a chunk of Trev's 3rd year.  Let me tell you, it was one INTENSE year, but it wasn't eternal.  Our toughest head-to-heads seemed to always happen on evenings Scott was at a late meeting and I was flying solo.  They start

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 g
