Merry Christmas… from a homeless mom.

Dear Friends,

As I was enjoying my coffee this morning, I found an incredible story of determination from Anastasia, a homeless mom who shared her story on my Facebook wall. Many of you will know how close to my heart this falls. I’d love it if you would read her story and leave a comment for her… I suspect that she could use the encouragement.

Her story can be found on my Facebook wall ( Be sure to view posts by “everyone” or “all” when you get there or you won’t be able to see it.

Merry Christmas, everyone!



P.S. I’ll be giving away your choice of a $50 gift certificate to Cotton Babies or 6 bumGenius Freetime One-Size Cloth Diapers diapers as a way if saying thank you to a new blog follower on January 2nd, 2012. After January 2, 2012, we’ll be picking at least one random follower to receive a free cloth diaper as a thank you gift each week (to be announced here).
