Embrace and Candle in the Corner

In honor of World AIDS Day, we have a wonderful new necklace available at From HIV to Home. Make a donation of $50 or more and we will send one to you. I love the concept of embracing those with HIV/AIDS and the necklace looks great – I love mine. All proceeds from this necklace go directly to our new Child Sponsorship Program, which you should also be sure to check out. We are starting small and currently have eleven HIV+ children in South Africa we are supporting.

Another place you must visit is Moms, Ministry, and More. Heidi is doing an amazing giveaway while highlighting the work of missionaries around the world. It is very creative and I have big hopes of winning the little Matrioshka ornaments and mittens from Russia. The event ends on Nov. 10th, so click your way to her site before it is too late.

This is the first weekend in a very long time that I have not gone to a faraway X-Country race, or traveled to Seattle. I have big plans…namely, finally packing away the summer clothes and their assorted bins that shame me every time I go upstairs. It is long overdue and must be done.

Have a great weekend and Embrace someone you love.

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.
