    Baby Announcements 2012

    Congratulations Sherry & Michael! Sending heartfelt prayers and love to you, Mirabella and her birthfamily. I know you have had this child in your dreams and prayers throughout your journey to parenthood. As is written in 1 Samuel 1:27, "I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him." Sherry, your Mama must be the happiest woman in heaven right now. Lisa

    Celebrity Adoptions

    You may want to check out the Rainbow Families thread under parenting. I may help with research/education. Additionally, if you do adopt a child of another race, reach out to someone of that race and ask questions! If you have questions about AA culture. hair or skincare (that's a biggie) or anything else, I'm available. You can feel completely comfortable asking anything. (hint: washing AA hair every day = very bad hair)! Lisa

    I'd be willing to bet there are already plans for reality shows. SMH...

    Congratulations & blessings all around. What a beautiful family tree(with all it's branches). Lisa
  9. I had a person tell me "Oh, you're taking the easy way" when I told her of our plans to adopt. Since she obviously had no clue what we had been through physically, emotionally or financially while undergoing fertility treatments, I just bit my tongue, smiled and said "well bless your heart" (which is Southern for, jerk or any other term a nice Southern lady doesn't said out loud).

    The Adoption Tax Credit

    Thanks for the responses. It seems like the overall theme is keep your canceled checks, make copies, send everything the IRS asks for and finally be prepared to wait a while. I really appreciate the feedback. Lisa

    The Adoption Tax Credit

    Thought it would be timely to bring this topic back to life. Has anyone successfully claimed the Adoption Tax Credit? Any tips / suggestions for those who placed in 2011 and those hoping 2012 will be their year? Lisa

    Spiritual Enrichment

    Just stumbled onto another great passage: Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

    Spiritual Enrichment

    The 23rd Psalm is always a comfort. Something about those familiar words...
