What am I stressed out about in this #TBT from high school?
1. That my floppy disk is out of space?
2. That my bangs are flat?
3. That I’m wearing an all-state chorus t-shirt from Disneyworld as pajamas and thinking it’s cool?
4. That my Rum Raisin lipstick is drying out my lips?
5. That my scrunchie isn’t big enough?

Wednesday’s Child: Twins Trevor & Terrell

Every Wednesday I feature a child recently highlighted by a local Wednesday’s Child newscast to share the stories of children from around the country who are waiting for a family. My hope is that this can broaden exposure for the children highlighted, but also serve as a reminder that these children represent thousands of children currently in the foster-care system. Perhaps their stories will inspire you to consider opening your home to a child needing a family. For more information and to learn about other waiting children, visit AdoptUsKids.

Happy Place

Karis did not appreciate the Frozen logo on my bargain-bin sunscreen 
so she made her own cover for it.

Kembe won the “ball of champions” at basketball camp for a second week this summer and decided, all on his own, to give the ball to a friend. Love this kid’s big heart.

Thank you, Trader Joe’s, for this attempt to legitimize, market, and profit off of day drinking.
Not sure whether to be grateful or concerned for humanity.
