Free Love's Journey 2 Book!

In 2004, Love Without Boundaries Foundation published the book "Love's Journey: A Collage of the China Adoption Experience." Parents from around the world submitted photos, essays, and poems about what their adoption experiences meant to them.
"Love's Journey 2: The Red Thread" is our second volume in this series and has over 250LJ2 Cover color pages in a beautiful coffee table style, hardbound book. This new volume uses the imagery of "the red thread," a popular belief in the adoption community, to show how our lives become entwined with our children's, as adoption weaves a beautiful tapestry of love and family. The moving photos and essays in this volume, again submitted by parents from around the world, talk about discovering the thread that connects us with our adoptive children, weaving the fabric as our children become integrated into our families, and cherishing the intricate tapestry that evolves.

Autumn Moon Festival-秋天中秋节

This year was the 5th year our FCC South Florida (South Florida - Families with Chinese Children) group celebrated Autumn Moon Festival with dinner at Miss Yip Chinese Cafe on South Beach in Miami Beach. Dinner was yummy and the company was excellent! Unfortunately, Neil and Chris were not with us this year, as Chris was playing in his first Miramar Optimist Football game since having injured his ankle several weeks ago. Although we missed "our boys" terribly, we were THRILLED to learn that Chris' team FINALLY won a game! Woot-woot-woot! Naturally, I chalk it up to the fact that Chris was injured in the first game, and this is his first game back. Look at what a contribution my amazing athelete makes to his team (yes, I am biased and yes, I feel this is acceptable since I am a PROUD MOM!!!)!!!!!

I hope all of our friends - both those from Asia as well as our friends with children adopted from Asia - had a wonderful Autumn Moon Festival Celebration/秋天中秋节!
