The Girl Effect

Considering that we are adopting our daughters from a Second and a Third World country (or a Developing and an Under-Developed country), I am very interested in learning more about girls that live in poverty. And I'm open to finding ways to help them that will, in turn, help those around them.

Take a look at this very powerful video, The Girl Effect, to see what I'm taking about.

I've read Three Cups of Tea: One Man's Mission to Promote Peace...One School at a Time and am currently reading Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide. Now it's time for me to act. And I think women, especially moms in America can make a huge difference. Interested in joining me?


  1. There's another blogger who is in the process of adoption a little boy from Ethiopa. I think adoption is wonderful. My husband was adopted.

    How have you been????

  2. I read Three Cups of Tea also. Fantastic book and so illuminating.

  3. Thank you SO much for sharing. I will for sure go check it out. So you will be adopting from two countries? It is amazing to me to see lifes touched by adoption...always makes me feel like I should be doing more.

  4. I will have to go check out that site. I think it is so great to help those in need.

  5. I really admire what you're doing. It's wonderful to help those in need.


Yeah! I love comments! Feel free to leave me one (or two or three).
But remember what your mama said..."If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all."
