"How could we not be honest with her? Her story is amazing. It turns out that discussing the adopted elephant in the room was one of the most fun bonding experiences Elizabeth and I could have shared."
The openness and honesty in our adoption relationship is the most beautiful thing I have ever experienced. Our family is not traditional. It has been born through the grief of infertility and relinquishment.
With the paperback version now available, the hardcover of my book, "The Open-Hearted Way to Open Adoption" is hard to find. +Pact an Adoption Alliance has a few to sell, and other hard-to-find adoption books, too. Check out their clearance sale!
"Some adoptees never see any documents whatsoever. "It's a running joke in the adoptive community," says Lynn Grubb, 49, author of "The Adoptee Survival Guide." "'Oh, those records burned up in a fire.' So a lot of us were told – floods, fires, explosions – all sorts of things."
I had the pleasure of working with Bryan West on trying out a SmileBrilliant TeethWhitening Kit and offering a giveaway on my review blog. The product lived up to the expectations I had, and Bryan was wonderful to deal with. He was personable, stayed in touch to the appropriate degree, and was always kind and professional. It has been a very positive experience, and I have a whiter smile to boot!
Katie led me through my first Pilates class expertly. She knew exactly how hard to work me so that I could find my edge -- to be challenged but also experience success. The studio is clean and bright, the machines well-maintained and also clean. I highly recommend Personal Pilates Plus.
Disclosure: I assist with social media for Personal Pilates Plus. I love representing such a wonderful organization.
