Amy . . .

What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

1.Rachel is from the Phillipines. She would like to move back to Manila. Her son is adorable and says many funny things that Rachel shares often! Check her out @


I just came upon this wonderful family today who is travelling this week to get their little boy from Ethiopia! Keep them in your prayers!

As far as an idea how about finding a blog that has posted a recipe that we have tried and then we can give a review? I know I am always looking for more things to make!

Have a great weekend!

This is great because these are two of my daily reads

Outside us- The livesay family are missionaries in Haiti.

Adoption blog- Cathing butterflies just picked up their little girl from China. Very interesting read.

Idea--new blogger. A blog with less than something like 50 posts. It will help incourage newer bloggers into our world.

Lynne said...

1. Blog outside US

A Canadian in Japan via England - she posted some pictures of Japanese food that look very interesting.

2. Adoption blog

Doug and Lisa from the Atlanta area celebrated their 10th year anniversary and 18 month LID. Doug works at Home Depot - same as my husband.

New idea: How about looking for something specific on a player's blog - such as finding someone with a certain number of children or has a specific job or has read a specific book or seen a specific movie - you specify the item to be found.

1. Vol Abroad is from Tennessee but is currently living in England with her English husband. She is currently expecting and planning to have a midwife, my dream until I had surgery that would make that impossible.
2. Andie and Jeff are in the process of adopting a child from China.

Hm, we could look for someone with the same profession or hobby that we have.

2. Wow, this was great! I found the adoption blog of a couple named Tammy and Kurt, and the last entry there left a link to their NEW blog, which was about their new family. And the latest entry there was about their one-year anniversary of adoption. So beautiful! You'll be writing an entry like that one day, too!

And! I emailed you with extra credit.

Simone ( I will exercise for comments) said...

oooh Just one mmmm......

1.My husband's : South Africa Western Cape. Its well written, funny and interesting. Its about 125cc motorbike, linux and everything in between.
Quote from one of his post:
My Gomoto is going nowhere today. In stead I will be using my wife's car in the next hour to drive to the airport to collect my Mother-in-Law, who is coming to visit us for a week.

I am tempted to say that this is the reason why the topic of "Insanity" is on my mind, but truth be told, we tend to call on her when we actually need to establish sanity in the household!

2. Cigarettes & Coffee
i keep coming back like a bad rash: mis-adventures of a birthmother in open adoption.
I left message on this post

Mercy's Maid said...

1. This blog is the first one that came to mind when you mentioned finding a blog that is outside of the US. She does Thursday 13 and sometimes highlights English expressions and lets people guess what they mean. :)

2. Just left a note at this adoption blog. It sounds like they're making progress!

booklogged said...

1. Heidijane at Adventures in Bookland lives in Malvern, Great Britian. I commented on her review of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

Debi said...


She just had her 5th child a couple weeks ago. She's amazing, really. Always cooks wonderful meals, organizes, etc. (And by the way, she lives in Australia.)

This one particularly interests me, because adopting an older child is something we would love to do.

Heart of Rachel said...

Hi Amy. I'm a little late with this one but I'm catching up.

1. Blog outside the US -
Kailani of An Island Life. She is a part-time Flight Attendant, wife and mother who lives in Hawaii. I enjoy reading her blog because of the interesting questions she often posts toward the end of her entry. I appreciate that she takes time to reply to comments individually.

2. Adoption Blog
Tammy of Just One Big Happy Family
. Tammy is married to Kurt. They have a daughter named Mary and they love camping.

Extra point - suggestion: Did you know that there are interesting "animal bloggers" (ex: cat with blogs) out there? Find one and share about it.

Heart of Rachel said...

Oops, sorry I posted the suggestion when I was supposed to email it to you.

Jose said...

1) There are many blogs that are from outside the continental United States. Find one, comment and tell us something interesting.
The Blue Panther Experience… and other things.
Here’s one that I read periodically. I don’t exactly know where he writes from but he certainly writes a lot about India. He started Blog Your Blessings Sunday BYBS, the purpose to post something on Sunday on why you feel blessed. He is actually a very good writer.

2) There are my adoption blogs. It can be domestic or international. Find one and leave some encouraging words!!!
I knew you blog would be a good reference to start searching and I wasn’t wrong. I found the blog “Awaiting Ava and read some of the posts. I also left words of encouragement for them.

ChupieandJ'smama said...

1. She's a very sweet lady from Canada

2. Adoption blog: Magi just adopted a little girl from China.

Idea: Find a blog where someone reviews a movie.

Find a blog where someone discusses a life changing moment.

1.) Have you ever been to Lifecruiser

Captain Lifecruiser is blogging from Sweden. Why Captain? She´s the Captain of the fantastic Lifecruiser Cyber Cruise. Why not visiting interesting great places all over the world on a cyber cruise? ;)

I enjoy SGT DUB´s blog every day. He´s one of my heros. I bet Michael would enjoy Sarge Charlie´s blog, too.

2) I´ve been to Never Too Many - they were LID April like you! WOO-HOO!!!
