Not Yo Momma's Nice Jewish Girl

I tried to order the tee shirt of the title of this post but it was sold out. Drats! Saturday I leave to spend a week with Nicole volunteering in Gulfport, Mississippi. Instead of balking about what needs to be done in this country, I wanted to make a difference so off I go. I'm totally excited about this trip and am sure I will come back renewed with a new sense of self. I've always been a do-gooder but this is different. I think it's the whole adoption thing that has made me feel like I am the luckiest gal alive. I feel so priviledged to be able to travel halfway around the world and be given the gift of motherhood, that I have this incredulous need to show my gratitude and what better way. As a nation we are not doing all we need to to aid the victims of Hurrican Katrina. While small, I hope my contribution makes a difference in someone's life. No pat on the back nor gratitude is expected. This is just something I have to do.

I think it's awesome you guys are headed down to Gulfport. I imagine the reward will be huge--can't wait to hear about your week after you return.
