Adopt - a - Family

A wonderful idea stolen from tru2myart, who is immensely wonderful and totally worthy of adopting (or friending):

I have realized how lucky I am to have my family right here on LJ. And as I've been replying to everyone and feeling myself glow it occurred to me how very much I want this to be real. There are so many of you who I'd like to introduce my kids to and who I know would love Josh. There are so many of you that I want to hug and kiss and call sister, brother...Mom. (And more *devious laugh*)

So I propose an Adopt-A-Family post. Whoever you are, wherever you, whether you have families large or small, I would like to adopt you and you to adopt us. I'd like the opportunity, even after the holidays, to write you and have you write us. To maybe visit someday. We're planning family vacations soon, I would be more than willing to plan many stops along the way. And you would be more than welcome at my very humble abode anytime. And maybe in the process some of you will adopt each other. Perhaps we can extend our families across the globe and those people who have no one, who are alone and lonely and in need of a warm heart, won't have to be alone anymore.

Just reply here and consider yourself a family member. You don't have to give out any information that you don't want to give, it's totally up to you. If you'd like the relationships to be strictly internet, that's fine. If you'd like more then that's good too. My email address is in my info, feel free to write me whatever you'd like, if you'd like. And as replies come in, feel free to talk to those who sound interesting to you. Maybe you'll find a long lost brother or sister or the missing piece of your heart that you've been looking for.

I don't know about you guys, but I can use all the family I can get. :Hugs her f-list:

If you want to leave personal info, such as an address, feel free to do it in this screened post. :)

Corn country? Where in corn country? We're headed that way the second we get our taxes back. :) This might happen sooner than I thought.

I'm near Kankakee IL. :bounces up and down: I would love it if you could come visit us! Our abode is humble but it's homey. :grins:

Hot damn!
Where's Kankakee? We're headed to Lyndon, IL. It's only a mile long, but it's in the NW (close to Tri-cities) on the Rock River, close to Sterling/Morrison/Rock Falls.

you're way too nice to be my friend.

LOL um...thanks? Actually, that would be tru2myart who's too nice. I totally ganked it from her.

Did you get my NetZero email? I haven't heard back.

I don't have the time/energy/focus it would take to commit to the adopt-a-family principal right now, but I just want to say what a fabulous person you are to continue your friend's concept. Seeing people who have enough warmth in their being to do such things reinforce my belief in the good of humanity.

Oh wow, thank you so much! We're all family, anyway. :-D

my sistah.. I am SERIOUSLY considering an LJ weekend here at Avalon next summer... :o)... start saving your pennies for gas.. that's likely about all it will cost. I'd even come up with a menu plan... or.. something..

big hugs

That would be so awesome! I have several reason why I'd love a sojourn to Canada, and you are high at the top of that list. Josh wants to make a big extended go of it and is helping me manifest it! And Mark has assured me that he'd pitch in some manifestation on that Reiki Share.

If you head up to visit lanternlady, you must stop by and visit me too, since I'm just half an hour further, if the city in her userinfo is correct!

And I grew up an only child, so I'd love a new sister!
Dec. 13th, 2006 12:58 am (UTC)
Oh, it'll happen! I'll be so happy to meet you in person! I grew up the eldest daughter, so I've got the sister thing down pat. It will be awesome. Thank you for adopting me and mine!
Dec. 12th, 2006 11:47 pm (UTC)
Ooh, ooh, adopt me!
And my wife and kits. (not kids)

And come visit me if I don't get there first.
Or meet me in Ottawa. That's cool too.
Dec. 13th, 2006 01:00 am (UTC)
Ooh, my first adopted brother! I would be honored to call you guys family. You bring the kits, I'll bring the kids. :)

I hope we get a chance to visit. I'd meet you wherever, if I could get there.

Thank you so much, Ally! I consider you family as well. We do hope to do some traveling, so I'd love to come over for a visit! I don't know when or if it will be feasible, but I'm going to totally manifest that happening.
