Visit the r house

Mrs. r at the r house has just started You Promote Adoption I Promote You

I love the idea because:
1. I've been thinking about doing spotlights for you couples hoping to adopt for a while, but really am too lazy/busy to keep up with it.

2. Because ADOPTION is totally a cause worth promoting. (Exactly why I started this blog/site.)

I am also TOTALLY IN LOVE with mrs. r's Matching Mondays segment.

Make your adoption happen, click on one of the links above. You just might fall in love with a child or a sibling group while checking out that last one! =)

An interview with Troy Dunn of WeTV's The Locator

By Brittany M. of queandbrittanysblog and authorbee's blog.

Through Mormon Mommy Blogs I was given the chance to interview Troy Dunn, of WeTV's program The Locator. Troy works to reunite family members who have for various reasons been scattered and separated. Troy is also an LDS bishop.

I took this opportunity to ask him about his show, his faith and his opinions on openness in modern adoption practices. He spoke about birth mothers and gave wonderful advice for adoptees and adoptive parents. Check it out by clicking here! **UPDATE The MMB site was down this weekend but it is now back up.

*If you have any other news in the adoption world, please let me know. Continue to spread the word about adoption. Advocate constantly, you never know who may be considering abortion.
