We designed this site in order to keep in touch with friends and family who are far away and in order to communicate with other adoptive families from around the world.

When we first started researching this wonderful way to become a family we read everything we could get our hands on. Even though there are a lot of great books out there, nothing was as informative or touching as the blogs we found by adoptees, biological parents, and adoptive families. So we are writing this blog now in hopes of returning the favor. We hope that if you are dear to us you will enjoy keeping up with our adventures. If you are someone out there involved in a part of the adoption triad we hope you will find information and comfort here and provide us with some of your own!

If you would like to get in touch with us we can be reached at:
Feel free to stop by anytime. We're happy to share our family story.

Take care,
Brian and Rosemary

What's on TV?

For everyone who parents with a careful eye to the TV (or no TV) and for everyone else who feels that you really can't go wrong with as many logged hours of viewership as possible - this clip is for us all. Because no matter where we stand in the constant war of "mom vs. cable" we probably all have the same sunshiny feelings about a few kid's shows: Sesame Street, The Muppets and Mr. Rogers brought to us courtesy of Public Television. Because no matter what our kids are watching we certainly can't deny that the images have power.

This clip of Mr. Rogers pleading for funding before the US Senate, on behalf of children everywhere, is moving to say the least. His commitment to taking a little bit of decency into a child's life every day is truly a beautiful thing:

I love Mr. Rogers. I am reading a book he wrote(Mr. Rogers Talks to Parents) that I really like. If I could have 1/100th the insight he has about children, I'd be a better mom. He rocks.

Rosemary, Thanks for commenting on my Why It Matters series. I'm not sure where I'm going with it ... And Your child(ren) will have more choices than I did.
