Blogging with a Purpose Award

I was surprised and flattered to find out that Kim of Journey to Baby Lem gave me the Blogging with a Purpose Award. Thank you Kim you are very sweet, and you have made my day! Kim is a fellow Wisconsinite and she and her dh wait for their first child. You know I'm not sure really what purpose there is for my blog other than being a way to communicate to friends, fellow adoptive parents and waiting parents about what's going on in our life, in my head, and with this wait. The blog is therapy for me.

I'm supposed to nominate 5 people for this award, and that part was easy. I could have nominated many more. Here they are:

Angie, of A Mother's Place. Angie is a fellow Nov 06 LID friend and her blog is a calm oasis for me. She always has the "right" words. She is a Mom to 2 wonderful boys and she is waiting for her daughter from China.

Karen, of Morris, Party of Four. I adore Karen's blog and I'm not sure she knows that I read it faithfully. Karen has a deep faith and is an amazing writer. I love her writing style. She and her family wait for an adorable (and I mean adorable) daughter in China. Hopefully she will be home with them very soon.

Ashley of Waiting for Lilly. Ashley is a dear friend and another LID group member. Ashley and I have many email conversations about everything. She has 3 teenage boys that she is a mama to now and she is waiting for her Lilly to arrive. She is a supportive friend and someone I will meet hopefully this year in person!

Gala at Story of Our Life. Gala's blog is as real as it gets as far as life, kids, job and husband. I have met and know Gala in real life and she has a kind heart. She is a sweetie.

And finally Verna, of Families Grow ~ Watch Ours. Verna is the blog fairy and she has done my blog and many others. Verna is a busy Mom to soon to be 5...she and her dh will be traveling to China soon to bring their little boy home.

1. Awarded parties must nominate 5 people who have not received the award.
