Lemonade Award


I was awarded the lemonade award by Alyssa's Mom over at I am tremendously honored because she is such an inspirational mom!

Here are the rules...
1. Copy the above logo and put it on blog or post.
2. Nominate at least 10 blogs that show attitude and/or gratitude (Those who add sweetness to life and/or inspire you by making lemonade.)
3. Be sure to link to your nominees within your post.
4. Let them know they have received this award by commenting on a post.
5. Nominate your favorites and link to this blog.

Most of the blogs I read have already received this award so I don't have 10 but the following sites help keep me sane and make me smile even when I want to cry. I would like to pass along the award to the following:

Sheri at
Thorn at
Socialwrkr24/7 at
Christine at
Linda B at
Tudu at

These are all wonderful women who are generously sharing their journeys.

Thank you Dia!! I am honored. :)

And to answer the question you asked on my blog. The agency couldn't tell Zari why she couldn't move to that placement due to confidentiality reasons. If they told her that something had come up on his background check without his permission (or in this case, his expressed refusal) he could have sued the entire agency. :( It is actually his selfishness that irritates me. To refuse to give her an answer. In general, I believe in telling kids the closest thing to the truth as is age appropriate. Because you are right, nothing breaks trust faster - and its usually so weak to begin with for these kids. Glad you are liking Zari's story!
