"R" Word Speech You Don't Want to Miss

Kevin's R Word Speech

A fellow blogger and friend Lisa at Finnian's Journey recently posted this very touching speech by her oldest son Kevin (13) who plans on presenting it to his student body and their families. I'm so very proud of him and can only HOPE my two oldest boys will follow in Kevin's footsteps and be an advocate for their little brother (and soon to be baby sister) some day.

I love Dan!

If you haven't "met" Dan, you need to go check him out on his brother's blog titled Dan Drinker. This post and this post are just two of many posts that I seriously get the biggest chuckle over. I cannot wait to "get to know" Joaquin as a young adult (although I'm totally savoring his babyhood!) I have to think that based on Joaquin's personality now that he just might have a similar sense of humor.

I adore you Dan!

This is a wonderful opportunity for others to learn about Andrea and all she is doing through Reece's Rainbow--and to get the word out about the plight of orphans with special needs in Eastern Europe. Please check it out!

A Birth Story

I stumbled upon a birth story that may quite possibly be the MOST beautiful thing I have ever read. I feel like I was a witness to this birth the way she so accurately and intimately describes it. Maybe it's because her story resonates so deeply with my own story.

Get ready to be completely moved by this....Nella Cordelia

What an amazing two years it has been. I love this little boy so much it hurts.

Happy Birthday Joaquin! We adore you.
