Every November I celebrate 30 Days of Thanks and Giving, I count my blessings & give thanks to all who have touched my life & left footprints on my heart! Thanksgiving is this week – and It is more than turkey & stuffing… it is Thanks & Giving!
I am thankful every day but today is special, It is National Adoption Day.
Today (as I do every day) I want to Thank two Amazing People, Linda & Ken Blake they did the most selfless thing and opened up their hearts and home to bring me into the family. They adopted me and I became part of the Blake family; made up of Linda, Ken, and Christoper! Linda, my mom- weighing in at a towering 4 feet 9 inches with a heart the size of the Grand Canyon, Ken, My dad, who can leap buildings in a single bound, the smartest man alive, and Christopher my brother, the writer, musician, artist extraordinaire!
That day those three people changed my life forever & I will be forever grateful! Words cannot express all that they have done for me. Through the years have been countless laughs, smiles, cheers & tears! Every moment has helped mold me & make me who I am today.
