Bullock's Speech - Thank You Moms!


I was very touched last night by Sandra Bullock’s remarks during her Academy Awards acceptance speech.  Her taking time to thank “the moms who take care of the babies and the children no matter where they come from” immediately made me think of the many adoptive and foster moms I know, including a personal hero of mine, Heidi Hess Saxton of the Extraordinary Moms Network.

Have you taken time lately to thank your mom, your friends who are moms, and the many out there caring for children “no matter where they come from”?

    Oh, you're so sweet. Today I saw “The Blind Side” for a second time and cried through the whole thing. Again. Not only because the story of Michael Oher is such a memorable one … but because the woman Sandra portrays is such a rare combination of tenacity and empathy. The kind of mother I wish I could be more often!

    Wishing you a lovely Easter … God bless!
