"Common Ground": my little corner of the blogosphere where I talk (a lot-wink) about the things that matter most to me: My relationship with my Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ, homeschooling, adoption, homemaking, parenting, "spousing." (yeah, yeah....I know that's not a word.....I made it up-it’s my blog-I can do things like that! Ha!)

Since my life isn’t all that different from yours, hopefully we can find some COMMON GROUND & learn from each other. Please share your thoughts!

Through the Lords’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not.

They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness!
Lam. 3: 22 & 23

Book Recommendation…….

Dave & I went on a date the other night-& ended up at one of our favorite places-Borders!

(now I can really hear some of you chuckling-“What a LAME-o life they have!!!” Hey-if any of you have BETTER date ideas when it’s cold, dark & we don’t do movies on dates-feel free to share!!!)

But, we DID go to dinner before that-just so you don’t think we’re total losers.

But, back to the bookstore-we pick a time to meet & just turn loose.

I wandered around looking for Christmas gifts for the kids-oh, the agony of having to choose-new “Little House on the Prairie” books for Ana, Nancy Drew-the ENTIRE old series that I grew up on, or cute little stories for the babies.

I finally made my decisions & meandered into the adult section-
& right out of the kiddos area there was a shelf of “adoption books.”

Just as an aside-I remember one "date night" about 3 years ago-I approached that section with great trepidation-& almost looked around to see if anyone was watching me pick up a book written by an adult adoptee. It was one of the first steps *I* took down the path of adoption-& I was scared to death to pick up that book. But, once I did, I couldn’t put it down.

Anyway, this time, I saw the book:

OK, I don’t usually get into these types of books.

They are just waaaaay to “touchy-feely” or something.

Probably why I’m kinda picky about the authors I read-
I don’t much care for fluff-know what I mean?

I like to be made to think……even when reading fiction.

BUT…..this one-I, once again, couldn’t put down.

If you have been touched by adoption (in any way),
this is a book that you will never forget reading.

(& may I say-if anyone out there is considering adoption-this is a MUST READ!)

Hi Kim -- My mother-in-law gave me that book right after Gabi came home and I broke down in tears reading the first story (probably because it was such an emotional time). I put it away, but your post is making me pull it out again. Now that things have settled, I may be able to get through it without crying my eyes out! Hope you're doing well! Tara
