#2} commit to praying for our family and for our child waiting in ethiopia. we need your prayers for our continued fundraising, for perseverance as we wait, for the actual adoption process to go smoothly, and most importantly, for the health and well-being of our child and the millions of other orphans waiting in ethiopia and elsewhere. if you will or already praying, please email me and let me know.

#3} become a follower of my blog. i always wonder if there are floaters out there reading the blog but not commenting. if you're out there, i want to get to know you so i can read up on your crazy life adventures too! if you become a follower, email me about this too.

my email address is mrsleslisweeney{at} if you email me, please make sure to include your name and an email address where i can contact you back in case you win.

Hey! :) I belive it was you that mentioned, in one of your comments on my blog, that you were reading "Black Baby White Hands". Is that right? I started reading it a few days ago and I want to like it. I want to keep reading. I want to learn from this man. But his writing style is so a.n.n.o.y.i.n.g! He writes like someone who has some talent, but is trying to be a poet. Uggh! It is so painful! LoL Do you have any favorite chapters? I just got to "Bunk Bed Brothers" and I can't bare to read another word without some encouragement. :)
