    It isn’t because we are women that we can’t fix a drain or work on the plumbing girls. It’s because we are people who didn’t believe we would ever need to! I’m going to tell you where you can get help and information! The following is a short list (by no means all inclusive) and a very basic idea...

    When Is an Adoption Like a Pregnancy?

    5 years ago

    Dear Anita, my husband and I are adopting a baby in November and my sister-in-law is expecting in December. She has been really great about our adoption up to now but lately has been insinuating that we don't "deserve" the normal attention expecting parents get (baby showers, announcements, etc.)...

    Adoption is expensive! Financing the adoption is one of the hardest parts of the process for most families. And let’s face it…the economy isn’t helping with this. So what are your choices?

    Help Anita! I was just recently laid off from work and am taking some important medications that I can not afford. I can’t afford the COBRA plan either…its outrageous! Any ideas for me on how I can get my medicine? ---Cancelled in Charlotte

    Fools in Love - Why We Do It

    On the verge between realizing the one we love isn’t as bad as we think and isn’t as good as we hoped there are those of us who laugh at the thought that these movies never tell the story of what happens after the movie ends and everyone goes home.

    Declaring a college major? Picking a major seems to be like picking out a car. Pick the right style and the choice brings forth self-esteem and confidence. But pick a lemon and you will most likely stagnate along the side of some dirt road and never get to where you know you should be.

    Fertility vs. Infertility - God's Plans And My Agenda

    5 years ago

    I wouldn’t presume to ever understand God’s reasons for doing things nor would I try to minimize the frustrations of not having children, but I often wonder if those who get them and treat them badly are miserably failing the lessons they should be learning and those who don’t have any are missing...

    Laughing at Sanity and My 5 Children

    I survived my life with my large family by being on top of things, always looking for a better idea, and finding the humor in everything. The by-product of this was learning to be grateful for the little things. Whether your family is large or small or your children are young or teens I'm sure you...
