So, I'm sponsoring my very first contest! :)
Answer the following question in a comment; one comment per reader, please:
Who was your greatest inspiration/encourager when you were considering or waiting to adopt, and why?
Leave a comment between now and Friday, June 1 at noon, Central Time. I'll choose the most inspirational story, post the name of the winning entrant, and you'll be mailed a few great prizes: a White Sugar, Brown Sugar tote bag and a copy of Brown Babies, Pink Parents written by my friend Amy Ford.
(If you see your story posted as the winner on June 1, please e-mail me your address: whitebrownsugar AT hotmail DOT com).
The more creative and inspirational your story, the more likely you are to win!
