the queenie

the girl...loves to rake the leaves! there's a lot of them and honestly, we don't rake them, but she loves to rake the leaves. and she has some style whilst she does it too!
you know that girl couldn't get a pic taken without her crazy peace-out hands!

it's november...and that means it's national adoption awareness month. and so i love to raise awareness {brooke and jada are kiddos of ours through adoption} and answer any adoption questions you may have...so every day this month, at the end of each post, i'll do just that...so stay tuned!

Currently, there are 496,000 children in the U.S. foster care system and 130,000 of these children are waiting for families to adopt them. The majority of waiting children are of color with older African American boys waiting the longest for adoption.

wanna make a difference...take a look at sheaundra and johnathan, just 2 kiddos who would love to find a family.

I love that you bring awareness to adoption. So sad to see so many kids without families out there.
