We are framing this photo for Samuel, taken by Kyle LaMere in Ethiopia, September 2012. Under the photo will be Maya Angelou’s “Love Liberates” quote.
How beautifully she sums up the importance and love of the birth mother and family. How true love frees; it does not enslave.
Someone once said, “Children need two things: One is roots and the other is wings.” I know Samuel’s birth mother was strong enough to provide our son with wings. Now our prayer … Keep Reading!!!
Thank you to everyone who attended the Houston Waves for Water Fundraiser to bring clean water to Ethiopia. It was a blast!
Kayla and Omar Dar of Baby’s Breastie and Fayye Foundation put the entire event together in six short weeks. Because of their dedication to the clean water project in Ethiopia, we were able to bring people of all walks of life together to raise $7000, which in turn will bring 7000 people clean water.

Old Folks Laugh by Maya Angelou
They have spent their
content of simpering,
holding their lips this
and that way, winding
the lines between
their brows. Old folks
allow their bellies to jiggle like slow
rise up and spill
over any way they want.
When old folks laugh, they free the world.
They turn slowly, slyly knowing
the best and the worst
Saliva glistens in
the corners of their mouths,
their heads wobble

We live in an age that encourages and supports do-it-yourselfers, possibly one much like yourself. Whether you are erecting a new home or other structure or are performing maintenance work, blogs and videos online can teach you how to do just about anything from start to finish. If you have the time and handyman spirit, you can do learn to do projects like tiling, deck building, fixture installations, and so much more. However, when it comes to tougher, heavier jobs, … Keep Reading!!!
We’re at week four and these stories of real attachment parenting dads have taken off! People are loving dads getting the accolades they deserve.

A story was told to me a few nights ago about two brothers and their love for each other.
This is a story of hope and love led by example of the most unfiltered, precious, and discerning people on the planet- children.
Parents tend to boast about their children’s Western accomplishments. Various awards are given out for excellence in academics, sports, and the arts. We all know, or are guilty ourselves, of bragging about physical attributes of our children. How … Keep Reading!!!
“The Brightest Light . . .” Letter from Laura Farruggio
I am proud to say my husband is speaking out and representing “attachment parenting” fathers in the February issue of Natural Child World.
The author of the article did a great job dispelling the myths presented back in May about the lack of presence fathers have in “AP” families, or that they have been dominated by their wives or significant others. It probably helps that Brian just happens to be a stereotypical “manly man” since many of the articles … Keep Reading!!!
When I look back at pictures from my son’s first two months, I sometimes get a painful ache in the pit of my stomach. My natural, medication-free birth went essentially according to plan, but our first week post-partum didn’t go as swimmingly.
After birth, my son was immediately placed on my chest. While my OB-GYN was sewing 12 stitches from a tear, he remained on my chest, and I tried to nurse him. I can’t really remember. When they placed … Keep Reading!!!
Homework is among the most IMPORTNET factors in the student’s existence. Doing it inculcates a sense of discipline in to the regime of a student.

This state of affairs can occur owing to several explanations starting from prior commitments … Keep Reading!!!
This meme has been circulating on the internet for awhile now.
Most of the people who share it are siding with the Dove campaign and say something negative about the Victoria’s Secret ad. Occasionally, it will be the other way around.
I find the meme and comments for or against either row of women completely degrading to every woman pictured, and women, in general. No matter how this meme is presented, the focus is always negative.

“As my sufferings mounted I soon realized that there were two ways in which I could respond to my situation — either to react with bitterness or seek to transform the suffering into a creative force. I decided to follow the latter course.”
-Martin Luther King Jr.
This is a day to reflect on how much progress we’ve made since the days of segregation and how much farther we have to go to fight racism.
This past week, … Keep Reading!!!
