Feature Friday: The Vintage Milk House

Hello to all you fabulous Stuff I Love Readers! 
(Doesn't Cat have just some great things going on over here?!)
I'm Kali from over at The Vintage Milk House where I blog, write, ramble... about my 3 Crazy Kids, our projects & crafts, my DIY obsession and life in general. 

Every year as Mother's Day approaches I find myself reflecting on so much of what has made me the Mother I am. Mother's Day holds a much different significance for me than it does for most women. Not only is it a wonderful day for me as a Mother but, Mother's Day 1985, changed the course of my life and the course of two other extrodinary women...

On May 8th, 1985 two women were at a crossroads and a 9 month old baby girl was at the forefront of it all. One woman had found herself at the age of 18 in an unimaginable position. The other, after the deaths of two of her own children, was trying desperately to hang on to hopes of becoming a Mother once again. Mother's Day was fast approaching...

This is the story of my adoption and how I left one Mother to join a FAMILY. 20 years later, that incredible family sought out that one Mother so that they could all join in giving me away to my incredible Husband. That day was May 8th, 2005. Not only was that particular day 20 years later to the date, but it also happened to be, MOTHER'S DAY

Over at The Vintage Milk House BOTH my Mothers and I have written a series called:

It's been an incredible roller coaster through out the years and coming together to write this has become a reflective adventure itself.

I would love for you to join us in this 7 part series to hear our story from each woman's perspective.

 Thanks Cat for allowing me to steal your stage for the day!!!
