Save Money Without Missing Your Favorite Coffee Shop Cappuccino

 Create Your Own Coffee Shop Cappuccino Without Leaving Your Home

Capresso Espresso & Cappuccino Machine EC-300 is a My Four and More Valentine Gift Idea

A delicious coffee shop cappuccino starts the day off right! Who is with me there?!

Explaining the Tough Stuff to Your Adopted Children

 Deep Conversations With Adopted Children

Adoption is not for the weak at heart. I know this because we live it. I love my children more than they know and the blessing of adoption really is a blessing to both us AND the kids.

This in itself is one big reason we chose open adoption for both of our boys. My daughter is a different story.
