Well, what can one expect on game drives?
The day we arrived at the lodge we were eager to go on a game drive. We took in the views from our room, splashed water on our faces, and rushed back to the common space to meet for tea … Keep Reading!!!

How many breastfeeding moms out there have heard one (or all) of these comments?
By Bridget McGann
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’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!!!

I have two families on this earth,
One by adoption, and one by birth.
My first family was very kind
But then one day they couldn’t find
The things they needed to help me grow.
They made a decision out of love, I know.
They said “Good-bye”, and
