Today I celebrate the one year anniversary of Blended. I am so grateful to all of my faithful readers who have been with me since the beginning of Blended and am honored that this blog has gained such a wide audience not only in the adoption world but also with multiracial families.

When I began last March I felt a need to represent our family and our experiences because they seemed to be ‘other.’ One year later I am encouraged and humbled by so many of you that greet me in my Inbox each morning or leave a comment on an article. Thank you.

As with any milestone, I decided that a present was in order this morning! And since I cannot give Blended an actual gift, who better to honor than one of you! Here is the skinny – peruse my book list for children and adults, choose one book that you would like to add to your library then leave me a comment with the name of the book and why you would like to read it. Comments close Monday, March 26th at midnight PST. One reader will be drawn at random and win a copy of the book they chose. I will announce the winner on Tuesday morning, March 27th. The winner will have 48 hours to respond to the announcement so check back on Tuesday to see if you won!

Thanks again faithful readers!
