I made the papers! And not because I was arrested or found running around the neighborhood nekkid!

Just in case you missed it, my latest Philly Moms Blog post, Return Receipt Requested?. I tackled the issue of the Russian boy that was "sent back" to Russia by the woman that adopted him last September. I'm very excited because it was one of two SVMG posts that was picked up by the McClatchy Company and syndicated in their 30 daily newspapers last Monday. To say I was excited is an understatement.

I also want to link to the post Parents Need Advocacy Too on the DC Metro Moms Blog, which is my inspiration for what I think will be my next post on PMB.



  1. Woo hoo! I remember your last one there too. Awesome girl, maybe you will start a column? Maybe you should?

  2. Haha - that's fantastic. But you had me at the title of this post, which had me rolling before I even got to read what was underneath it. Major Props.

  3. You said it perfectly. Great post on Philly Mom Bloggers.

  4. Congrats. It was a good article. Such a sad, thought provoking story. As a mom of kids adopted after their international adoptions were dissolved, I can imagine the sense of fear, helplessness, and grief the mom had. However, how that then turns into sending a kid back on a plane is beyond me.
