This week, the blogaholic in me found lots of great new adoption reads to share with you. They're all short and sweet and so worth your time.
Twelve - What's an appropriate gift to take when you meet your new daughter for the first time? Especially when she's twelve. Read one adoptive mom's musings in Walmart on the night before she travels to Ethiopia to adopt two older children. What do you take for the twelve year old?
Progress - How do you get rid of all the negative behaviors in a way that fosters deep connection to your adopted child? What's the right kind of discipline?
"Maternity" Photo Session - One couple's cute photos commemorating the wait to bring their adopted child home.
Overthinking Fundraising - What do you think about fundraising for adoption? Is it something you would try? Is it the right thing to do? This blogger shares her perspective on adoption fundraising. You can even leave a link to your own fundraiser at the end of her post.
Tonight is a big night at our house because it's the night that . . . (dramatic pause) . . . NATHAN COMES HOME! We did it. . .ummm, I mean. . . He did it! He made it through the whole week!
Yesterday I got a new photo from camp.
Now that's more like it. If I'm not mistaken, that's a real smile on Nathan's face.
Enjoy your holiday weekend.
