Wish List For Adoptive Parents {Giveaway}

Wish List For Adoptive Parents {Giveaway}

Posted on 02 September 2011 by Kari Gibson

{Updated with Winner’s names!!} 

  1. Congrats to Chante: “We have adopted a nine year old son from Haiti and a nine year old daughter from Ethiopia. We would love to have this book for our family!”
  2. Congrats to Becky: “Our now 5 year old daughter, born in Ethiopia, has been home for 13 months. I would love to read this book, we have felt the effects of so many of the listed losses, feelings, etc.”

When we started our adoption process, a friend gave me the book by Sherri Eldridge. Honestly, it scared me to death! I tried to read a few pages, but it made me feel tense, weepy, and afraid.  I remember talking to Roger about my feelings and he encouraged me to wait until Zoie came home and read it when I felt more confidence with our new daughter. It really was the best advice for me … I think sometimes we can read so many books and helpful advice pre-adoption, it can cause a lot of stress. I’m not a professional, but an adoption coach/cheerleader/mom who has gone through the adoption process from start to finish.

Here is a great list (straight from the book) you can read and gain a sense of understanding about how your adoption son or daughter might be feeling. Zoie is only three years old, but I want to make sure we stay on top of her feelings and validate her unique needs. I’m confident that when challenges or issue surface with our adoption, Roger and I will have some great resources to help us through.

{Giveaway} Today only, I’m giving away 2 copies of the book for 2 special adoption families.  Leave a comment and share with me what country you adopted/or in process of adoption.  I will update this post with the winners names.

Special Mission News: Are you interested in going to Uganda & Kenya in October with Visiting Orphans- GREAT NEWS: We just found out that there is a BOGO sale on airfare for our October 12th to 24th Kenya/Uganda trip. You could save BIG (by $1K-the total trip cost now would be $2300 to $2500) and visit orphans at the same time! Sign up ASAP here:

1. I suffered a profound loss before I was adopted. You are not responsible.

2. I need to be taught that I have special needs arising from adoption loss, of which I need not be ashamed.

3. If I don’t grieve my loss, my ability to receive love from you and others will be hindered.

4. My unresolved grief may surface in anger toward you.

5. I need your help in grieving my loss. Teach me to get in touch with my feelings about my adoption and then validate them.

6. Just because I don’t talk about my birth family doesn’t mean I don’t think about them.

7. I want you to take the initiative in opening conversations about my birth family

8. I need to know the truth about my conception, birth, and family history, no matter how painful the details my be.

9. I am afraid I was given away by my birth mother because I was a bad baby. I need you to help me dump my toxic shame.

10. I am afraid you will abandon me.

11. I may appear more whole than I actually am. I need your help to uncover the parts of myself that I keep hidden, so I can integrate all the elements of my identity.

12. I need to gain a sense of personal power.

13. Please don’t say I look or act just like you. I need you to acknowledge and celebrate our differences.

14. Let me be my own person but don’t let me cut myself off from you.

15. Please respect my privacy regarding my adoption. Don’t tell other people without my consent.

16. Birthdays may be difficult for me.

17. Not knowing my full medical history can be distressing at times.

18. I am afraid I will be too much for you to handle.

19. When I act out my fears in obnoxious ways, please hang in there with me, and respond wisely

20. Even if I decide to search for my birth family, I will always want you to be my parents.

Q- Are you dealing with any of the twenty things with your adopted child?  Will you share ….

PS: I Hate It Here {Crazy Summer Giveaway}

Posted on 28 June 2010 by Kari Gibson

As I sit here writing this post, my daughter Hannah is at summer camp.  We have received two letters from her and thankfully she starts both off with “I love camp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I’m NOT homesick!!!!!!”  I’m a big fan of the hilarious new book , a collection of letters from kids living the nightmare wonderful camping experience.  They borderline crazy and funny and laugh-out-loud pleas to rescue them from camp.  We live next door to a big crazy summer camp, so this book really hit home with me!

OK, my crazy readers…. lets have some summer fun and throw a giveaway party!!  I loved the book soooo much I did something kinda crazy. (you know me) I contacted the author, Diane Falanga and guess what… she emailed me back!  Seriously, I’m just a little giddy to say the least!  I told her I was going to have a giveaway and shout out to my mom readers about her new book.  She graciously contacted her publisher and I received 2 books in the mail- just for you!!!


Just leave me a comment – that’s all you need to do to enter.

2 Winners win:

A brand new copy (from the publisher!!) of P.S. I Hate It Here: Kids’ Letters From Camp.  This is a fun book for parents and kids to read & laugh out loud together!!  I will randomly pick 2 winners later this week.

Added Bonus:

Also, you can share with me your own summer camp stories- the crazy memories you cherish or something your kids did or said to make you gulp!  You can even share an actual ‘Kids’ letter from camp.’  I want to hear and so does author, Diane who will peek at all the comments you leave!


About the book:
For every parent who’s ever received a letter from a homesick child or anybody who’s ever written their parents with crazy requests from their bunk, will delight with hilarious and heartwarming real-life letters.

More than 150 letters cover all the imaginable scenarios of sleep away camp, from acing the cabin lice inspection, to rowing in the “ricotta” race, to breaking the bad news about a retainer lost in the wilderness. These letters reveal that kids are wittier and more sophisticated than we might assume, and that the experience of being away from home for the first time creates hilarious and lasting memories.

Meet Author Diane Falanga

is a humorous look at homesick kids during summer camp. These real letters are laugh-out-loud funny – everything from forgotten necessities (a strapless bra, five bucks for a lost tooth, a tennis racket) to desperately pleading their case for going home. Factio caught up with North Shore author Diane Falanga to talk about her inspiration for the book, her favorite moment working on this project and her favorite places in Chicago.

FACTIO MAGAZINE: Tell us about the book!

When my daughter, Bianca, was 8 – she was determined to go to overnight camp. My husband and I thought she was too young – but she was very convincing and presented a seemingly rational case. So, we shipped her off! Then the letters started to arrive.  The first one was a hilarious, hyperbolic rant about how the counselors had made her “scraper, sweeper and maid” b/c she couldn’t stop crying. I found this so funny that I instantly started calling friends to read them Bianca’s letter. Everyone seemed to have a camp letter of their own to top this one. An idea was born.

FM: What did you love most about the project?
Reading through the more than 3,000 camp letters I collected from kids around the country. Sharing some of the gems aloud with my 16-year-old son, Blake, Bianca and my husband, Mark. The letters made for great dinner conversations.

FM: Where do you draw your inspiration from?
DF: In the case of P.S. I Hate it Here! Kids’ Letters From Camp — definitely from my daughter.

FM: What are your favorite places in Chicago?
We live a couple of blocks from Lake Michigan and beautiful Gillson Beach. That’s my hang-out.

FM: What are your favorite places worldwide?

DF: Besides fabulous Chicago … Italy – all the way. My husband’s family lives in a little town along the Amalfi Coast, Massa Lubrense. We spent some time with our kids all through Italy last summer.  This summer we’ll be back – hiking the Cinque Terra and in Sicily, too. Hiking and mountain bikinig in Moab, Utah is also pretty spectacular. And Telluride, CO – winter, spring, summer or fall – is a favorite place, too.

FM: What are people surprised to know about you?

DF: That I’m so darn short. Having a loud voice and a big laugh gives the illusion of height.

FM: What was your biggest career moment to date?
DF: Initiating the Heart Homes Initiative of Designs for Dignity. We reclaim gently used furnishings for people who are in need in Chicago.

If you would like to learn more about the summer camp Hannah is attending- check out this link!!!  It’s a summer sports Christian camp called Kanakuk!

Dear Crazy Adoption Readers, :)
I want to say a deep thank you for all the kind comments regarding my blankets. I’ve been humbled and blessed by so many of your comments and the wonderful things that you had to say. Each of your stories touched me and I’ve found my way to lots of your blogs because there are few things I like better than a good adoption blog! Congratulations to the winner. I hope you love your MamaEnat Adoption Blanket. I’m sorry the rest of you didn’t win, but unfortunately I can only give away so many blankets as I’m trying to bring home our own Little Miss. For the next week, until January 14st, I’m offering a special deal just for you! Enter the word “Zehlahlum”  (this is the name of my blog and the Amharic word “forever”) in the comments to seller box on Etsy and I’ll refund your shipping costs for one blanket! This is good for ONE week and only when you enter the word ZEHLAHLUM.
Again, thank you so much!



I’m so excited to GIVEAWAY a one of a kind Adoption Flag Blanket!!  You win a $50 gift certificate for 1 large “31 x 34″ blanket- you pick the country.  My Crazy Friend, Jamey is adopting from Ethiopia, raising funds through her Etsy Link- www.mamaenat.etsy.com.  You can meet Jamey via her blog www.zehlahlum.blogspot.com. She recognizes not everyone adopts from Ethiopia, so she can do a lot of other countries as well. She has several other countries featured on her site, so please stop by and take a peek.

The blankets are all custom made, so that customers can pick the color that they want for the back. The 2 extra photos are the small blankets.  It will take Jamey a little time after it is won to be able to ship it out.  All you need to do to win this beautiful giveaway is leave a comment. I’d love to hear why you want to win this one-of-a kind blanket, too.  This is a 3 day Giveaway- I will randomly pick a name from the comments and announce the winner on this post January 7th after Zoie goes to bed.

Winner- Please email me so I can give you information to shop online using your virtual gift certificate.  If for some reason, I don’t hear back from you within 48 hrs- I will pick another winner.  Thank you for your understanding.

(Large Flag Blanket- made in any country U pick)
