A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove...but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child. --Forest E. Witcraft

  1. What a great family you have!!!

  2. Not sure where to post this, but I recently compiled a list of single foster and adoption blogs on my blog. From the comments, I realized I wanted to do more to connect people who've decided to jump into the deep end of fostering and adopting without a partner. This (http://bit.ly/116zRxt) is my attempt to do that. So, my hope for this blog is to be so much more than a blog, I want it to become a large support network for single Mamma's and Daddies all over the place.

    Please check it out and let me know if you’d like to be involved. :)
