I recently stumbled upon a link while getting my daily fix of E. Falc. It lead me to a site made by a couple who are looking to adopt another child and it really touched my heart.

Megan, the woman who, along with her husband Shane and son Carter, is hoping to adopt, has a heart condition that "could cause pregnancy to be dangerous for her."

I don't think that I've shared it on here, but there is a decent chance that I won't be able to have babies. Some of the chemo drugs that I was given may have made me infertile. Scrambled up my eggs. I'm keeping hope in my heart and I haven't give up the thought that there are still a few perfect little eggs in me.

Please take a look at their site and please pass the word around about this lovely little family!

Speaking of children...

Everyone needs to drop what they're doing and check out the videos on YouTube about the PS22 Chorus in New York. Holy crap. These fifth graders are singing Cold Play, Regina Spektor and Bjork songs! I wish all music programs could be like this.

And, speaking of music... Nic and I are going to see Death Cab for Cutie tonight! Eeeep!

Hope you all had a great weekend. Goodies and pictures from mine to follow!

Ha! I'm also very into the no bull-crap, very little sugar coating, telling-it-like-it-is-when-it-counts type of life. I think that's why I like you so much, Kimberly.

Violet, you are such a beautiful soul! Thank you for having such a kind heart and making this lovely post.

I LOVE the video and have posted it on facebook because it is just too good not to share!
