Spring giveaway!



'No matter how long the Winter, Spring is sure to follow.'

~proverb



'Spring is sooner recognized by plants than men.'

~ Chinese proverb



The first day of Spring is tomorrow March 20th. Spring also known as the 'Vernal Equinox' is when the sun crosses the equator...so day and night are about equal in length for a while. All I know is that with the recent time change William is sleeping about an hour later in the morning and that alone is a reason to celebrate! In honor of Spring's arrival I'll be giving away the above sweet Spring gifts, 2 embroidered cotton hand towels and a box of 6 french milled robin's egg shaped soaps that smell quite delightful. A week from today(March 26) Grace or William will be drawing the winner's name and I'll be sending off these Spring gifts to brighten up your home. So please leave me a brief comment if you'd like to be in the giveaway. Welcome Spring...we are so happy you are (almost) here!

I want to be included in your giveaway! I read the blog everyday and have enjoyed watching the children grow and mature. Grace is beautiful and William is something else! I am partial to cleft lip and palate babies. I work in the clinic at the Medical University of South Carolina. About 1/3 of our babies coming in are adopted from China. Thanks and have a great weekend.

Hello Gail
I'm Delwyn from Aus.
You have a gorgeous blog, full of colour, fun, beauty and love.

I am touched by your ongoing story as I have an 18 year old who was adopted from Korea as a baby.
She came into a family with 3 children and has been a joy and a blessing to us all.
Happy days
Delwyn

Gail, I just discovered your blog this morning and read your earlier posts-William's adoption. You have a beautiful family! Your blog especially interests me because we are in the process of adopting a 2 yr. old from Guangdong Province--waiting on TA.
