I'm am so not into having all the newest technological gadgets. But that said, I do love my new cell phone!!! :) I have been meaning to switch services, especially since I had over $100 in roaming charges from the ONE WEEK we were in Tennessee!!! Anyway, then at the zoo Monday my cell ended up in the basket of the stroller, as did a cup of water from a little one. Needless to say, the cell was soaked and didn't work right since. Instead of getting a new phone, I went Tuesday after registering the olders for school and got a free one with my new service. I love it! I have the one with 5 "faves" whom I can call anytime for free. There are only a few I dial often anyway, my friend J, my parents, and the foster agency. I can (and many probably do, but this is new for me and I think it's fun!) download songs to play for ringers. I downloaded the theme song from Friends for my regular ringtone, then Time after Time for my friend J, Sweet Home Alabama for my parents, and the kicker - Bad Moon Rising for my agency!!! I was cracking myself up! :) That is four of my faves taken, J has home and cell and uses 2, so I still have one fave "open." It's just been fun to play with, and I love that is was a free phone and that I will save money with this service. Plus, I can use it when we visit FL which I couldn't with my other. Yay!

About Me

I am a single mom to four amazing kids; each of whom just happen to have been adopted. The first three were adopted through foster care, and we just completed an international adoption from Haiti. Our family has grown through adoption and I am all the more blessed to know each of my children. I worship a mighty God, teach Special Ed, love bargains, and am inspired by Pinterest... come along with us for the ride!

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website:

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
