Big Brother

I have always believed that adopting is one of the single greatest acts of kindness and generosity that people can do in this world. To take a little person who might fall through the cracks of life and bring her into your home and into your heart--that's literally making the world a better, brighter place.

That's one of the many reasons it's been such a pleasure for me to get to know Mike and Michelle, two wonderful people who have adopted three little boys. They are such a vibrate, happy, chaotic family, the kind that when they walk by, people can't help smile at them.

They just found out that the birth mother of their youngest son is pregnant again and she asked them to adopt the unborn baby so that two siblings could be raised together. This would be their fourth child, but their hearts are so big, they jumped at the opportunity.

One little catch. Adopting is expensive. Crazy expensive. And after paying for three adoptions, their bank account has cobwebs and chirping crickets. So they've set up a website that tells their story and accepts donations to help fundraise for the cost of the adoption.

Please go check it out. If you can, help these wonderful people make the world a better place.

More later,
