And right in the middle of a crappy few days my little hero gives me this intense eye contact and nothing else matters nomore! my little reminder of all the good in the world 💕🌏! #myworld #myboys #sospecial #autism #eyecontact
It's crazy to think that the little girl who lives just behind where I stood to take this photo is 17 today. I love getting to be a small part of her family's life and connecting with her through letters all of these years. @jenrglam
, can you believe it was 8 years ago that we were in the Philippines visiting our girls?
For those of you who have sponsored children through Compassion International. How does it work when your child turns 18? Do they provide a way to stay in touch? I realize, with social media, it's probably not difficult to connect with them after our sponsorship has ended, but I'm curious if Compassion helps to facilitate that in any way or actually discourages it.

Flashback Friday: Most of you don’t know who this little guy is.
He’s actually a build-a-bear and is over a decade old. My husband bought him for me from Downtown Disney when we were dating. He even had a little sound bite where he giggled! It always made me smile. So I appropriately named him Mr. Giggles. Anyway, he was in storage for years because he was super dirty and I didn’t want to ruin him, but then I found out when I bought my kids their own build-a-bear that they destuff them so you can wash them, and restuff them for no cost! Mr. Giggles finally got a nice wash! And my 3 year old daughter fell in love with him, even in his flat-destuffed state. So I brought her with me to get him restuffed. She pushed the lever to suff him, and kissed the heart, etc. And since then she’s been so attached. So I sat down, looked at her held Mr. Giggles and handed him to her and told her to take care of Mr. Giggles because I’m going to give him to her. She was so surprised and so happy! Now she sleeps with Mr. Giggles, or I should say Mr. Diggles (which she calls him), every night. It warms my heart so much to see her love a stuffed animal as much as I did. What a special moment to know that a teddy bear that I loved so much is being taken care of by my daughter who I love so much. 💗🐻

Celebrating ADHD awareness month. Thank you to the Stone Bridge MS students for making these awesome bracelets to bring awareness. Raising two boys with this syndrome is never easy but I recognize how hard it is to be them too! I love my perfectly imperfect ADHD children! We should all stop judging and recognize the uniqueness that lies within💙💙 #2boyzoo #alwaysgoing #sospecial
Happy Birthday Pierce Xander Waln!! 🍰 🎈
10/19/18=16 years old!!! Such a big year and accomplishment. I don’t take it lightly and I am sooo proud of you! You challenge me because you are so much like me. I respect the young man you are becoming. I love that you are completely yourself in all that you do. Your independent streak runs strong and comes naturally from me!

Que nunca se nos acaben los momentos de locura (tos tos sacarnos fotos en medio del bazar tos tos)
I cannot explain to you how much this girl means to me but I was struggling immensely today and one hug from this girl washed it all away! She is just something out of this world and I can’t believe how lucky I got it! #mycutie #sospecial #myalien #mygirl

TBT Wasn’t auditioning for the show just apparently a huge fan....#sospecial
she’s got the life....people carrying her around, coming to her beacon calls, feeding her, changing her, letting her do as she wishes and even pushing her as she lounges in a swing...
i wish i could have that kind. of treatment..you’d think she’s a princess of something.
