Welcome to our corner of the web! Here you will learn about our family and our journey of a family member adoption. In July of 2010, after 9 years of trying to add to our family and 5 years after we started our adoption journey, we welcomed baby Emily Rose. Emily's birth mom is Sharon's adopted sister. We look forward to someday adopting more children but for now, we are enjoying our time together as a family of 4!

Giveaway and Special from Envision Image!!

In the wee hours of the morning I was asked a question on Formspring about if we would do a private adoption again, and what the pros and cons to a private adoption are. Stay tuned for the answer to that tomorrow. But for now, have I got a fabulous giveaway for you!

Yesterday I contacted Crystal of Envision Image Photography & Envision Image Design. Crystal is not only an amazing photographer (she was the photographer for Stefanie's wedding a couple of months ago. Stefanie is a fabulous birthmom who placed her daughter for adoption, if you haven't read her blog, you have to!) I explained to Crystal that November is National Adoption Month and told her that I was blogging about adoption all month and that I wanted to include some giveaways. I asked her if she would be willing to donate either a photo session, or a blog design to a hoping to adopt family. The response I received back, floored me. Seriously! I am soooo excited! Not only is Crystal doing a giveaway for a hoping to adopt family, but she also has a special she is running, for, get this, the ENTIRE month of November, to not only hoping to adopt couples, but also to birth parents, and adoptive families! I am blown away by Crystal's sheer awesomeness! So are you ready for the details?

In honor of National Adotion Month, Envision Image Photography & Envision Image Design are giving away a Complete Blog Redesign for a family hoping to adopt! This blog Redesign will include, a custom background, slideshow header, and custom buttons for spreading the word.

To enter, all you need to do is send me (Sharon) an email at jandscrown@yahoo.com. Please include your name, email (so I can contact you should you be the winner), and a short summary about your adoption journey and why you need a blog redesign.

Submissions will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. Mountain Time, on Tuesday November 23rd. From the submissions, Crystal and I will choose 5 finalists, and then beginning Friday November 26th, we will have you, my readers, vote on the winner. The voting will go until November 30th. The winner will be annouced on December 1st!
