If you adopted an older child from Pleven…

May 10th, 2017

…and you would like him or her to be included in an upcoming post, please email me at susanna@theblessingofverity.com.  I’m including each child’s first name with before and after photos–no other identifying information!

Thirty-five of the children are currently included, and there are SO many more I would love to add!  So please don’t hesitate to email!  Thank you so much!

Now on Facebook

May 3rd, 2017

Hi everyone!  A couple of things happened recently that made me realize it’s time and I’m ready!  It’s a good venue for quickly sharing important needs as well as featherweight photo posts without significant content.  That’s just where I am in life right now.

If an occasional weightier post needs to be written (such as the big, upcoming Pleven post with before-and-afters of many of the children!), I can publish it here and share it on Facebook.

Plus, after seven years of blogging, I miss the human interaction you gave me through this blog.  So…hope to see you there!

Nathaniel was ready to drive me down to Virginia for the A Mother’s Rest planning retreat, but that didn’t work out like he’d hoped~
