When Debra Wallace dreamed of parenting, she imagined the United Nations convening in her kitchen. Including a passel of her own, Debra envisioned foster children careening to the table and scraping chairs on the hardwood floor, blonde curls bobbing beside black afros. She and her husband, Jason, would foster to adopt and had only one stipulation: no disabilities.

When Matthew, a partially deaf two-and-a-half-year-old, and his younger brother Christian needed a home, however, Debra and Jason jumped at the match. Debra’s proficiency in American Sign Language, along with a master’s degree in Social Work, made them a perfect fit.

Before Ford was even born I knew I wanted to make his baby food when the time came. My sister made Embry's and the cost savings is incredible! Not only did the money aspect motivate me but the fact that I could control exactly what I was feeding my baby. The biggest piece of advice I can give moms about to start solids is to use the website Wholesome Baby Food. Honestly I've never used any other website (or even Google) with my baby food questions.

Last weekend my friend and I traveled to Kansas City to watch the Natural KC Classic and IFPA Pro International. It was an amazing experience in the sense that most people hear about a body building show and think of young dudes on steroids walking around half naked. However, that wasn't the case!

As these women and men hit the stage for a couple minutes that they had been preparing for for longer than a couple days or weeks was amazing to see. There were women at the age of 40 plus on stage with bodies better than a 20-year-olds. Men on stage flexing muscles that they had been working day in and day out for numerous years!
