I Just Adopted...

No, I didn't adopt another child nor another pet... I adopted Darrel, a 31 year old, 6'3" 200 lb full grown man. Not just any man, mind you, Darrel is a soldier- on his second tour in Iraq.

I "met" him through a wonderful organization called Soldier's Angels.

Soldier's Angels is a volunteer-based nonprofit organization founded by the mother of two American soldiers. They have over 30 different teams supporting all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces. You can get involved in so many different ways. You can do as we have done and adopt a soldier, or baked homemade treats for Angels Bakers, Blankets for Comfort & Gratitude for our wounded men & women, Hero packs (care packages), K-9 support, Memorial Portraits or so many more wonderful ways to help our men & women in uniform (and their families) feel supported and loved.

May no soldier go unloved.

May no soldier walk alone.

May no soldier be forgotten,

Until they all come home
Patti Patton-Bader
