Now this is the kind of vanity we could use more of! Much happiness to all of you and especially to the new Graybeards! All children deserve a loving permanent family. :~)

and get them some new tee shirts .. ha

Believe it or not, both were brand new. We told them to wear whatever they liked that they had and they did. As I commented already - at least they weren't wearing hoodies.

All Nick knows about Bob Marley is that he was some old time singer. I don't know much more than that about him.

Congrats Amber and Nick for picking wonderful parents!

Bob Marley did that famous reggae version of "I Shot the Sheriff." But his socialist repository includes songs such as "Get Up, Stand Up" (stand up for your rights).

But, you may be most familiar with the song "One Love", currently featured in the Jamaica Tourist Board television advertisements.

It goes like this:

One Love!

One Heart!

Let's get together and feel alright.

This is outstanding.

One of my dearest friends and his wife are in the final stages right now of adopting three siblings, ages five, four, and two. Just waiting for the final paperwork to clear.

What an amazing blessing!

My very best wishes to you all. I know from experience that adopted children are truly special. Almost anyone can have children. It takes very special people to CHOSE children.

You have a ping list for your adoptions? How did I miss this?

Just a list of names I put together of people I know or have respected their comments in the past and the list is by no means exclusive or exhaustive, they didn't asked to be pinged and I won't be pinging them again. I'm not aware of any "adoption ping list".

If there is one or if you want to start one, I'd be happy to be on it.

There's just no way I could have included everyone I know and/or admire at F.R. My old memory would never allow it.

Congratulations!
You and your Missus deserve high praise for doing that which many will not usually do.
Many people only desire to adopt the very young or only infants while older children tend to get passed from home to home instead of being adopted and they usually never develop strong family ties.
I hope Nick and Amber come to understand over time how truly fortunate they are to have you two in their lives and may you both enjoy having them in your lives.

May God bless you all.

yeah my kids think Bob Marley is cool too.

I think he’s not cool, but my kids don’t agree.

I think he has some redeeming grace.

"One Love" - Bob Marley

One love, One heart
Let's get together and feel all right
Hear the children crying (One Love)
Hear the children crying (One Heart)
Sayin' give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right
Sayin' let's get together and feel all right

Let them all pass all their dirty remarks (One Love)
There is one question I'd really love to ask (One Heart)
Is there a place for the hopeless sinner
Who has hurt all mankind just to save his own?
Believe me

One Love, One Heart
Let's get together and feel all right
As it was in the beginning (One Love)
So shall it be in the end (One Heart)
Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right
One more thing

Let's get together to fight this Holy Armageddon (One Love)
So when the Man comes there will be no no doom (One Song)
Have pity on those whose chances grove thinner
There ain't no hiding place from the Father of Creation

Sayin' One Love, One Heart
Let's get together and feel all right
I'm pleading to mankind (One Love)
Oh Lord (One Heart)

Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right
Let's get together and feel all right
