Celebrate Earth Day with Usborne Books and More!

God calls us to be the stewards of His creation which is why I love to celebrate Earth Day. One of the reasons I chose to use cloth diapers with MacMillan was because it reduced the amount of waste going into our landfills. No one knows how long it takes for a disposable diaper to decompose, […]

Never in my life did I think I would utter the following words: “I’m lucky to have infertility.” Even so, it’s true. I feel lucky that what seemed like the end of the world led us to you, MacMillan.

How many times have I answered this question? A ton. I don’t mind it being asked truly because I feel the more people know about the adoption process the better. But there are days where it seems like it takes forever. I think the waiting to be matched feels even longer because of the struggle […]

BravEllie is our Valentine this year

On August 24, 2015 Ellie was diagnosed with hepatosplenic gamma delta T cell lymphoma, an extremely rare cancer. Ellie received a bone marrow transplant from her little sister Jayda this past December and is now in isolation at home until her new cells have had a chance to be accepted by her body which has left the Shaw family facing many physical, mental and financial challenges. So join me as I host an Usborne Books and More party to benefit the Shaw Family.
