journaling my life as a single adoptive/foster mommy so I can share our life and remember these things when I am old.

Becoming an activist.....
I was not my ususal self yesterday. I had quite the bee in my bonnet about the Consumer Safety Protections Improvement Act. I was irate because from all my reading and research, I found out it included childrens clothing from resale shops. I have a favorite resale shop where i get most of the kids clothes and i have this idea for a clothing bank to help foster parents. I was emailing state representatives, and anyone i could think of to voice my opinion. this is very unlike me to get so worked up to actually do something. i did read today that they have given resale shops an exemption. there is more to it that annoys me but for now we'll see where they go with it. I was a woman with a cause.
I'm a very busy mommy of three beautiful adopted children. My big girl, my little man and princess monkeybutt are my world. Adoption has become my passion and I do whatever I can to be an advocate for foster children and adopted children. I love my family and we are loving God, loving each other and making life up as we go along!
