Win a Nintendo Wii from Contest Beat

Yup, you read it right - Contest Beat is giving away what is probably the most fun gift you can give this Christmas - a brand new, boxed, Nintendo Wii! I’m sure you’ve heard about how Nintendo is selling more Wii’s than both the Xbox 360 and Sony PS3 so I won’t bore you with the virtues of this machine - its popularity speaks for itself. The sponsors are, who very kindly answered the call with a prize that has blown me away.

December is the busiest month of the year for cell phone sales (think about all those new Nokia’s and iPhone’s under Christmas trees right now) - 40% more phones are sold in December than any other month. The only problem about getting a new phone though is what to do with the old one… and maybe you even already have several lying in cupboards or around your desk (I have two that I know of). Well now you can get rid of them quickly and easily, and also make some money at the same time by selling them on, so make sure you check them out.

So come on go enter!

Now that my friend is a giveaway!


Something very dear to my heart

This is something I've wanted to do since I was a mere child and realized that the age had passed for anyone to be interested in adopting me.

November is National Adoption Month

"For finding your mother, there's one certain test. You must look for the creature who loves you the best."
- Little Miss Spider, by David Kirk

For my family, the quote above has symbolized adoption ever since my daughter, Maylee, came home from China nine years ago. We celebrate National Adoption Month by re-reading the many adoption-centered books we've collected over the years, including A Mother for Choco and I Love You Like Crazy Cakes. Our newest choice, Motherbridge of Love from Barefoot Books, puts adoption into words that children can understand. Click here to listen to this beautiful poem. Enjoy this celebration of families everywhere!

Motherbridge of Love, by Xinran, illustrations by Josee Masse.

This beautiful poem celebrates the bond between parent and child in a special way. Through the exchanges between a little Chinese girl and her mother, Motherbridge of Love offers a poignant and inspiring message to parents and children all over the world.
