I bid you goodbye for a while..and ask you to say hello!

Hey all!
Ok, so we have some big things happening here over at Give1Save1.  Let me just hit you with them. The first being that Give1Save1 is merging! Waaaay back in the beginning we were one big blog. Do you all remember that? Then we branched out and we now have Give1Asia, Give1Europe, Give1Domestic and Give1Caribbean .  That's a LOT of blogs! And a lot of families! So here's the exciting news...we're going back to one big blog! Here's how great it's going to be?! Here's why it's so fantastic, it will increase the range of readers which will (hopefully) increase the support we give our families each week! Also, it will help with families who are just beginning to research adoption, they can go to one page and read about several countries, get connected with lots of families and hopefully get lots of questions answered! We're working on getting all the blogs together and they should be ready to merge in a few weeks, so make sure you like us on Facebook so you can be aware of our new page!

On another note, I'm gonna get real with you all. My hubby and I are in the process of two adoptions, from two different countries.  We're getting ready to bring our son (who will be 3) home in October, hopefully!(he's actually our second adoption but is coming home first, it's a long story) You can read more about our personal story here. Anyway, my hubby is going back to school, and we're quickly becoming first time a three year old! Life is about to get crazy up in here! So for now, I'm stepping away from Give1Save1. I'll be popping back in from time to time to say hey, share some Africa things with ya, but you are being left in GREAT hands! The mama's of the other Give1 sites are joining together on the new blog, and they love you and can't wait to get to know all the Africa families! The one you'll being seeing most around here until the official merge is Katie!

Katie blogs over at Give1Asia right now but is excited to get to know all the Africa families too! She's awesome! She and the others from the other Give1 site are pumped about the merge into one big blog! It's like we're all one big happy family! You'll wanna get to know Tonya, and the other Katie too, oh and Jennifer! These ladies all have huge hearts for adoption and we're all so excited to see new friendships formed from everyone being in one place! You know, the "adoption" friends you have totally "get" you, and now you can meet lots of other families who's little one's are from lots of different counties, who knows, maybe your heart will be softened for a country you never even knew about right?

Anyway, like I said, I'll still be around here and there. I'll be taking a break for a while, but I'll be back every now and then, and you know where to find me ;)  And like I said, I'll still pop in and out Wynne will still be posting too from time to time, and Alison too and don't forget Jessa, our newest contributor, she's in a BIG cross country move right now, but she'll pop in too :)

So pop over to our personal pages and say hey! Let us know what you're up to! We'll do the same.

    1. Thanks, Jenny! I'm excited to see what's in store for all of us!
