Hiatus

I have really missed writing on my blog. The Family-Building Dinner is Saturday and the preparations have taken up all my time and my brain power.

I am so excited to see everything come together. We have over 100 attendees and hope to have a very successful silent auction. The grant applications are rolling in and we will be awarding our first grants in June!

I have the entries for the blog entry/essay contest sitting in the queue. I will not be able to pick a winner until next week. Thank you to those who entered submissions. Real life stories are the best way to educate on infertility and adoption.

The adoption tax credit has been extended and enhanced to over over $13,000. It will sunset in 2012. Let's hope the federal government continues to offer the tax credit to adoptive parents.

Things are well on the home front. Min man is cute as ever. With the turn in weather we have been able to get out the bikes and scooters and sidewalk chalk. It feels great to have the windows open and feel a warm breeze.

Next week I cannot wait to compose a long post about the dinner and show everyone pictures of how it turned out.

We are so thankful to everyone who has made a contribution to the event and continues to support PFM. We are all a part of changing people's lives.

Here is a link to a local on-line article about Parenthood for Me:

I have saturated our local media. It's weird for me to be all over the news and on the radio.

Next step is national news. Here's to hoping!

I wondered where you had gone. Your absence did not go unnotice by me. I am so glad to hear the reason is PFM. I wish you all the very best with the dinner and auction. You are an amazing, loving, and giving woman.

*hugs*!
