Oh, awesome. I love these. You're way more interesting than I am, but I'll do my best. Thanks a bunch.

Kierah Jane Reilly said...

Thanks Raquel! I think it's so cool you've adopted some kids. My admiration for you just went up a few notches, even though it was pretty high up there to begin with!

Six kids, at least two of them adopted! You qualify for SuperWoman status as far as I am concerned.

And I love what you would do with all that money!
