  1. I agree with Fran! I would put the little things she may forget . Light bulbs, laundry detergent, pens, scantrons, etc
  2. Carissa, wow! I never realized I had such a big impact on you! I was also unaware that I had "drilled in" being yourself, even from my first orientation. I think that's information that should be widespread! The forum is so amazing because it's so rare that all 3 aspects of the triad help each other at Abrazo! I've learned so much from AP's side and I value it so much. It has helped me try do nothing but my best in many aspects of life, but especially my placements. It definitely hasn't always been easy, but I'm now starting to appreciate that it has ALWAYS been worth it.
  3. I post to the forum almost exclusively through my phone. I've never had any problems. I can access the desktop version and it works fine!
  4. I was drawn to the first couple I chose because of her profession and the fact that my son would grow up to be bilingual. And she loves to bake! There wasn't much in particular that drew me to Tim and Leslie from their profile. I just felt a bond with them from the moment I met them at orientation. However, I do like that they appreciate ice cream and Sergio liked that they are into soccer. And it was a good match. I think, as a birth mother, Carissa gives fantastic advice! We look through so many profiles and have to narrow it down. Put some pictures that jump out at us. I don't mean this
  5. Awesome news Mari! Glad you had such a good weekend. Thanks for sharing.
  6. Such an amazing band. I don't understand the thought process of some people.
  7. Mari, I hope your meds sure kick in quickly! Praying for you!
  8. Katie, there is a thread that addresses this issue http://abrazo.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=4612&view=&hl=&fromsearch=1
  9. Mari, I'm very glad to hear you have had some relief, even if you aren't ready to take the world (or even the day) by the horns! I have always viewed you as a sort of surrogate mother, if you will. I admire you and I love you. I respect how you have always been a voice.of strength even in my toughest of adversities. Thank you for everything you have done for me and everyone on the Forum. You are a blessing in so many ways. Carissa, wasn't she AMAZING at that orientation? I have been fortunate enough to speak alongside her and Lauranda at two orientatioms, and their story touches me each time.
  10. Wow, a life ended too soon. I heard about that on the news. It gives me chills. Praying for his whole family.
  11. How sad. Sending my prayers for the White family.
  12. You do this and so much more. You're a valuable part of Abrazo's community and I'm so grateful I know you.
