What do you think?

This is how my Bug sleeps most nights. Yes that is a REAL cat wrapped around her little head.

I find this new ad for Volkswagen stupid and a bit offensive to people who HAVE struggled with infertility or ached to have a child. Those of us who have gone thru International adoption KNOW it is not a "flip" decision without emotional and financial struggles. I get that it is supposed to be funny but is it? Cyber adoptions? Seriously? What do you think?

I want to give a shout out to my sister. She read an ad on Craigs*ist , where a lady begged for food for her dogs. She didn't want to give them away but money & health issues were taking a toll. My sister contacted her, bought her a large bag of expensive food (dogs had allergies) and brought it to her. Did she run the risk of it being a scam? Yes. BUT....she did the Christian thing. She did the caring thing. Help thy neighbor. If the lady is a scammer that is HER problem. She did what she hopes someone would do for her if she needed it. Just care. We need more caring in this world. For children, for people, for animals. The lady was very thankful for the food. To my sister ~You rock and I am proud of you. :) Love you.

love the pic of Bug sleeping!! how funny!

I didn't find the ad offensive...just really stupid. You do make a very good point though about people who have struggled to have a baby. But then Brooke Shields struggled for a long time and I think she was joking. who knows?

and what a great sister you have! she sets such a good example for the rest of us. Thanks for sharing the story and for the reminder that we are supposed to do things for God and no other reason.

Love the picture.

I agree with the other comment. The ad was stupid.

What a caring sister. She has played the good samaritan and we should all try to be more thoughtful and kind to strangers in need.

Aww! How sweet,thank you sis! (And to your friends too) The lady truly was appreciative. I'm glad I was able to help her and her doggies out. (a little bit anyway)

Giana bug & Smokey Bear looks so cute! LY
