I won a blog award :) No it doesnt come with any fan fare but it does make me happy! My new blog friend Alex who I met due to our political differences gave it to me. I enjoy her and her hubbys view point on the election, even though they are very different from mine ;) Her husband is well versed in politics. Its nice to learn something new. She is a young mommy to a beautiful little boy, and we DO agree on how important the title of Mommy is to us :) I will pass this award on to 2 ladies.

Liz I met thru my adoption of Boo. We used the same wonderful agency and have little Guat tots almost the same age. She inspires me because she is a mommy to 3 sons, a beautiful daughter with Downs, a beautiful daughter adopted from Guatemala AND now a brand new mommy to a 3rd beautiful daughter they have just adopted who happens to have Downs also. AND she is pregnant ! She is truly blessed and her heart for adoption and children with Downs syndrome makes her inspiring to me :)

Next is someone I met thru an Ethiopian board and chatted with only once or twice but I learn SO MUCH from her posts. Valerie is also adopting from Ethiopia. She helps us all to understand how to care for our black children emotionally , and how to live a life "outside our safe zones" and become part of the black community to help raise our children to be who THEY are meant to be. She has insights that make me think. Always a good thing :)

Boo and I couldnt find this naughty kitty...

we found him snuggled up in Bug's bed!

This kitty is a food addict and not kind to small

animals if given the chance, but he is SO perfect

to cuddle with. He makes the kids very happy.

Boo showing off her stickers "Nannie" gave her.

No adoption movement yet :)
