2. Another Small Adventure - Brenda is everything that I want to be in an adoptive Mom. She always has great insights and experiences on being an adoptive Mommy, foster parent and friend.
3. Always and Forever Family - I enjoy this blog because this adoptive Mommy adopted an AA little girl. I have been intimidated to consider adopting an AA child, but following this blog has helped me to overcome that fear! She also has great insights on how to fix your AA childs hair!
4. Smiles and Trials - I really enjoy following this family. They have adopted several children internationally including some with special needs. What a big, organized, bustling family!
5. Because I Can't Have Babies - Savannah has become one of my favorite virtual friends. She is such a sweetheart. I love her Finding Faith Friday postings and check in with her every Friday to find an uplifting spiritual message.
6. From The Heart - Cheryl St. John is my all time favorite author of historical romance books. Her blog is everything from funny vids, recipies, How-to, photography, book reviews and historical research. She is a regular blogger at Petticoats & Pistols.
7. Grace In My Heart - What a wonderful blog. Following the story of this little family as they go through, first a contested and failed adoption and now, the adoption process all over again has been heart-wrenching and faith promoting all rolled into one. Grace has been such an example to me in dealing with the ups and downs associated with adoption.
