You should check out the owners blog.... she's an adoptive mother of two, went through a contested adoption last year and is practically a celebrity in the adoption world (not really but people joke with her about that). She's a fierce advocate of open adoption and adoption in general. Her blog has tons of great stuff, one of my favorites really. Lots of adoption related topics and topics for birthmoms. Check it out when you have some time.

It's funny, I had come across her website earlier - wound up there because she was talking about an award that the conference she went to gave to our agency. She had such lovely things to say about the president of our agency, who I have met a couple of times and think is just one of the nicest men.

Small world, sort of ;)

I love making my own T's for special occasions

for example "Got Love" for Valentines day or I'M the Big Brother or Little Brother etc. Avery has some great iron on's you just do through a regular printer, so you can make your T any style or size wanted. Ill attach a pic if I can figure it out.

I love those shirts! I'm thinking about getting the one that says "I get my good looks from my birth family" for our trip to visit them next month!

Etsy is so addicting! I can go on to look for one thing and be there all day!
