Anyone else attend the 8046 conference yesterday in OKC? I really enjoyed it!

Erin, I couldn't really tell you much about infant adoption. We adopted from foster care, and it's quite different. I have friends who've adopted infants, though- but they were attorneys themselves, haha! And, they adopted the infant of their own adopted daughter... a little different! Others have help for Erin?

Hey, folks! The Oklahoma Heart Gallery is always looking for more venues to display the Gallery (of photos of kids in foster care who are looking for a "forever family" to adopt them). If you know of a large church, large corporate office, or other place where hundreds or thousands of people could see these kids, let me know! I will pass your idea on to Lyn Bank, the OKDHS liason for the Oklahoma Heart Gallery.

Angela Krueger is the Adoptions Feature Writer for and she contacted me a couple of months ago with the interest in reviewing my book series. Who would I be to say no??!! So, of course, I said yes to having a review written, starting with the premier book in the series, Why Can't You Look Like Me, introducing it to the vast amount of readers who view's site.Click on the link to read the review:

The gift of a child is ALWAYS a miracle, however God sends them! Thanks to all those who help that happen. Makes me want to write another song!

I will email Lyn Banks with OKDHS and ask her. (I was just with her yesterday, at the Foster & Adoptive parents training they held in Tulsa.) I'll let you know!

Hey- I've just been invited to join and perform in a 36-City Tour with Borders Bookstores across the country, with author Diana Joy, and fellow performer, Susie McEntire Luchsinger (Reba McEntire's sister)! See if we're coming near YOU!

I just received word of a FREE Adoptive & Foster Parent Training being held in Tulsa in Sat. Nov. 7th. Call (800) 274-2687 x3729 or e-mail (Tell them Becky Wright sent you.:)) I will be there! Look for me! Love to meet some of you. ALSO: There is a $50 child care voucher available (per child, limit 2) for those who've adopted (and finalized) with OKDHS. Here's the flyer link for more info:

Angela, are you hoping to adopt a newborn (a private adoption), or an older child or sibling group?
