While we were in Naples, sitting in an Einstein Bros. Bagels I saw a post on my Facebook feed from Foster Parenting Podcast with a link to a movie called Palms and the text: This video does a good job of showing what foster care and adoption feel like from a child’s perspective. I didn’t move out of my hard wooden chair for the next 32 minutes while I savored this short film. Definitely worth the watch here if you have time. Photo from here.





Tonight my mom and I went to see the movie Babies. On the way we talked about babies, getting pregnant, cooky baby names. It was a funny girls night. I wish my sister could have been with us!

The documentary was cute – lots of oohs and awes and chuckles at baby antics. If you delight in watching babies play and learn and interact, you’ll enjoy watching this. There is no plot or dialog so it’s tempting to keep whispering back and forth about this antic or that observation.

The style of documentary reminded me of March of the Penguins (I’m one of the few who enjoyed that movie and didn’t fall asleep watching it.) I’d recommend it for what it is.
