I actually have a pretty bad confession, and I want to share it because I never thought about how I might be contributing to something immoral.
We live in a building that is super close. Our floor leaves doors open and we treat it like an open community. After the TIME cover came out we were welcomed back to a supportive and protective group of people.
We also share our technology.
We all share the same internet, have synced iPods, … Keep Reading!!!
“Girls just don’t like me.”
I started hearing those words for the first time in middle-school. I still hear grown women saying some form of that phrase (“All of my friends are men, I just get along with them better.” -I bet you’ve heard that one before). I bought into it like everyone else did. I had friends tell me that other girls didn’t like me, and so the seed was planted. I learned to judge and fear women, and … Keep Reading!!!
This upcoming trip to Ethiopia is bringing some amazing people together.
I’d like to introduce our little group:
The Ring Leader: Meet Paul Chadha
President of the Awassa Children’s Project, Attorney, Professor at Northwestern- not to mention husband and father! Thanks to him, we will be checking out the Awassa Children’s Center and working together to uplift the children and families of the area.
The Writer: Shannon Colleary
First in a series with Dr. Jay Gordon.
We asked you on our facebook page what questions you had for Dr. Jay Gordon.
Here are his answers to five of your questions:
1. My middle daughter has autism. Are there any supplements that he would recommend for her?
My approach is very basic: a sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy free diet is the heart of treatment kids with ASD. Some children with autism don’t absorb vitamins and other nutrients … Keep Reading!!!
Brian and I met the month I turned sixteen. He was almost twenty-one at the time. He wanted nothing to do with me because I was so young. Needless to say, I was fuming by this rejection. I didn’t hear from him … Keep Reading!!!
I keep getting asked this question:
“Do you think using the media is good way to spread an important message?”
I absolutely do! There are some things worth mentioning before jumping into something as crazy as a potential media firestorm, though.
Your entire family needs to be on-board. You are a unit, make important decisions as one. A media firestorm will effect every member of your family, so you’ll all need to be … Keep Reading!!!
It’s no secret- I have no sense of direction.
GPS was invented for people like me, and ironically I still have yet to own a vehicle with built-in GPS, or the device itself.
Anyway, a few days ago I managed to get lost with the with the kids again. We were driving around aimlessly down an alley-like side street when the clouds parted and this lovely sight appeared:
That is right, … Keep Reading!!!
Happy Fourth Birthday Aram!
You are so so loved.
On this day, you had your (very scary) early start at life:
But look at you now!
NOW THAT is worth celebrating!
When Samuel first arrived home it was very important for him to get a sense of our roles as a family. This is another way to build attachment and help him grasp that he is part of a new family. This was initially difficult for us to do, because when Samuel first arrived home he showed signs of indiscriminate friendliness.
I.F. is a common issue among adoptees (especially in orphanage or multiple caregiver settings). We haven’t completely worked through this … Keep Reading!!!
Well, I finally watched all the interviews I did the day the TIME cover was released. Brian said it was important for me to see. I can’t stand hearing a recording of my voice, so you can imagine how horrifying it was for me to hear audio accompanied by video! Being shell-shocked is not the best way to be interviewed, I’ve decided. Where was my Xanax when I needed it?
Here are my thoughts on what I just witnessed. Nothing … Keep Reading!!!
I have been reluctant to bring the boys to The Getty because I did not feel they were quite old enough for the experience. However, my views have changed. My friend Alexandra and decided to brave The Getty with our preschool-aged children.
Admittedly, we did not make it into the building. However, we bought snacks and spent hours in the gardens. What a beautiful and inspiring place for children. It is like Alice in Wonderland.
