AHOPE Holiday Cards

Here is a great opportunity to knock something off your Holiday “To-Do” list and help the children of AHOPE at the same time. AHOPE is selling wonderful holiday cards to support the children in Ethiopia. For $15.00 you will receive 12 cards and envelopes. The text inside says:

May your heart be filled with the joy and festivities of the holiday season

You can see the cards and many other wonderful items at the AHOPE Store . To go directly to the cards, click HERE. Quantities are limited, so order soon.

We aren’t showing a photo of the children’s faces because AHOPE has a very strict photo policy to protect the children’s privacy. HIV carries a great stigma in the United States and an even greater stigma in Africa. Out of respect for the children, we don’t use photos that fully reveal who they are. The photo on the card shows a spontaneous, playful moment that we hope conveys child-like joy.

On a personal note, thank you to everyone who commented on my last post. I am thankful to know many of you. I met even more of you when I took a peek at your blogs. I just ordered a new book that I hope will have some helpful suggestions, Beyond Logic, Consequences, and Control . I’ll let you all know what I think.

Let me introduce myself. Russ and I are the parents of twelve children by birth and adoption, and sometimes more through foster care. I'm the creator of One Thankful Mom which has been as much of a gift to me as to my readers. In 2011 I became a TBRI® Pracitioner* and have lived and breathed connected parenting ever since. I'm deeply honored to be the co-author, together with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, of The Connected Parent; it is her final written work. I love speaking at events for adoptive and foster parents. I'm also the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a podcast and resource site for adoptive moms. I mentor and encourage adoptive moms so you can find courage and hope in your journeys of loving your children well.

    Lisa—I would have recommended Bryan Post but from how beautifully written your post was, I assumed you were already a devotee! Susan

    Lisa, I ordered some sweatshirt hoodies last week. When could I expect them in the mail?

    Hi Susan #1. We did watch the Bryan Post DVD’s from AAI and thought they were very helpful. He is the one who got me thinking about fear being the root of some of Dimples’ behavior.

    Hi Susan #2. Thank you for ordering hoodies! You can email Marissa, the AHOPE Store manager and she can tell you when to expect your order. Her email is: ahopestore@gmail.com

    I just got an email today from a friend who received her cards. She says they are big and beautiful!
