For some time now I’ve had a reader named Amanda who has followed this blog – Hi! Amanda!, *waves.* Amanda is one of the many people who has written me emails of encouragement and left comments here and there. Well Amanda, sent me an email and asked me if I would speak at an event in Mobile, Alabama for an organization called Adoption Rocks! Of course, I agreed and now I am anxiously waiting next week and hoping that I completely justify Amanda’s faith in me!
On a funny note, Amanda gave me a time range of about 2-5 minutes and I have alternated between the feeling of “how will I ever get all of this into that small amount of time?” and then utter panic about how I will possible fill those 2-5 minutes! (I’m apparently a little more complex than I imagined.) I also keep tearing up while I make my notes so it’s going to take lots of review and practice to keep me from getting choked up!
It looks to be a great evening – Miss USA Alabama Audrey Moore is going to be there and country artist Carla William Weavil. If you’d like more information on this night out in support of adoption or to make a donation to Adoption Rocks! Click Here!
