As an adoptive Mom I worry about my kids understanding adoption and knowing how much we love them. They may not contain my DNA but they hold my heart and soul in their hands. We have purchased many books talking about adoption and explaining it in the terms of children. Berta Serrano captures my own feeling in her book, Born from the Heart.     "Rose dreamed of her baby every night . . . She couldn't wait to share hugs and giggles.” Every child is born from the heart—whether or not the mother gave birth to that baby. This poetic...

I don’t know many details about what led up to my adoption, other than my birth mother was about 16 and birth father was about 17, and they chose adoption. I was placed in a foster home after I was born, until I went to my forever home with my parents when I was four months old. My adoption became finalized when I was 17 months old.

You simply use the included USB cable to charge the battery, connect to your device and you have great sound no matter where you are!    The 808...

With this feature you can back up user-generated content from your social networking sites, like Facebook and Twitter. Many of us use our smartphones these days for...

    Day 5 of our Holiday Gift Guide brings us to Zeenie Dollz.  These dolls are beautiful eco-warriors. Each Zeenie possesses an eco-power that protects the earth.   The 12" Zeenie Dollz are made entirely of recycled plastics and the box is also bio-degradable. There are 6 dolls in the Zeenie line and I found each to be more beautiful than the previous.  These dolls are not only fashionistas they each highlight an environmental cause. I had a very hard time choosing which Zeenie I preferred but finally settled on Zennia.  Zennia is a special edition doll and the first in the Zeenie...
