When I started blogging, I used my spot on the internet to update friends and family about our adoption journey and to find sponsors for my kiddos in Uganda.  I posted once or twice a month, while my one child napped, and that was about the it.

I didn’t know I’d fall in love with blogging.  These days, I post several times a week, manage a much larger site, and find myself falling more and more into the “work-from-home” category. I love my unexpected life and those of you who stop by for a visit.

I sometimes incorporate Amazon affiliate links into posts, the sidebar, and footer.  As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

From time to time I also review a product, book, or movie.  Sometimes I receive these things for free, in exchange for a review.  My reviews are always my own opinion.

I’m not an expert on anything.  I’m just a wife and mom and volunteer orphan advocate.  Everything I say on this blog is my opinion.  Just because I love a product and it works for me doesn’t mean it’ll work for you.

I want you to know how much I value you.  Thanks for reading, for clicking, and for your unique part in this blog community.  I am humbled and grateful for your presence here, and I will always seek to be honest with you, 100% Melanie, 100% of the time.
