Thank You Dannye



For nominating me for this Blogging with a Purpose Award.. It means a lot to me that others see my blog as a source of inspiration. Helping others get through this difficult journey is my pleasure so many others have helped me. Dannye you will get there just keep the faith.


I understand these are the following guidelines for said award:

AWARD GUIDELINES:
1. Awarded parties must nominate five people who have not received the award.
2. The blogs that receive the award must serve some purpose.
3. In their post about the award they need to link back to the original entry.
4. Awarded parties must post the award banner on their site. The banner must remain linked to Eric Novak's site.

So without further ado, here are my five nominations in no particular order:

1. As We Wait for Lily Kate Susan and Jonathan are not only our travel mates but our friends. We could not ask for better people to share this trip of a life time with. Their blog is always the first one I check each morning and it always puts a smile on my face. Susan thank you for always being so kind and sweet.

2. Our Hope and Dreams Cheri and Shane's blog is a source of motivation and inspiration. All I have to do is go there and see Hope's beautiful face and it reminds me that we are NEXT (with our agency) and that our time to be parents is coming. Cheri and Shane thanks for Sharing Hope with us while we wait for Sophia.....

3. Charmed In China Wendy's blog has made me laugh, cry and scratch my head at times. Most of all Wendy has thought me so much about being a parent. More then just parenting, being a parent to a child who had a different beginning and may have different questions and issues. Her experience has been so wonderful as a learning tool for us. Thanks Wendy for everything.

4. Giorgia Danette Stephe's blog is full of wonderful finds and the most amazing research I have ever seen. Stephe has taught me so much about organization. She is not only a fellow adoptive parent but a good Panda Friend. She and I met in 2006 when we began the wait together. We spent a weekend together in Philadelphia with some of the most amazing women I have ever known. Stephe is level headed and always the voice of reason when I need it... Stephe thanks for all you do in our little Panda World....

5. and last but certainly not least I love this blog because it is simple and she is my local connection... Journey to Mary Alice Sharon lives with in an hour from me and she and I have spent time together on several occasions. I can always count on Sharon for the latest on the local goings on, and a good cake recipe from time to time. Sharon's daughter Mary Alice and Sophia will have many play dates together, I am sure. I know that those pictures of Mary Alice and Sophia will frequently be highlighted on my blog. Sharon thank you for always being the one I can go to and say what the H@$% is going on LOL...

Thanks again Dannye....

OMG..Susan, I don't know anyone I can pass this honor on to because you and I follow the same blogs! I'm a lurker, so if I send this to someone, they are going to be like, "who are you??" LOL! I may figure out a couple of people, but don't be offended if break the chain and ruin any good karma I had going!! I know it's risky.
