Week 6 — Featured Commenter:

The Gang's Momma This week’s loyal commenter is The Gang’s Momma from The Gang’s All Here.

A mother of five, yes — I said five, The Gang’s Momma is an inspiration. Her blog will bring a smile to your face as she vibrantly details the daily happenings of her busy clan. With three boys and two girls, there are no shortage of stories to tell.

From the deeply funny stories of little boys and their bodily functions to the poignant pictures of shared kisses with her toddler, The Gang’s Momma will keep you grinning.

Perhaps most inspiring is the tale of the adoption of their (deliciously cherubic) youngest daughter from China. In perfect detail, The Gang’s Momma takes you on her family’s journey as they explore the depths of love that adoptive parents and siblings can feel.

It is a tale that is most precious and I encourage you to read this post and this one in order to gain an understanding of just how special this family really is.

The Gang’s Momma describes herself as a “happy homemaker, hoping to share my journey with you and learn a little bit more about LIFE along the way. I have been called outgoing and contagious, but what I hope the most is that my children will one day rise up and call me blessed!”

If that doesn’t give you a deep enough glimpse into The Gang’s Momma’s heart, then I encourage you to click on over to her site and read a little more about her and her inspiring family. You will laugh, you may cry and you will probably walk away with a recipe or two!

We recommend this blog to anyone who is looking for a fun read, but especially to those who are considering adoption. The story of Li’l Empress’s adoption is a blessing to read and The Gang’s Momma is truly a wonderful resource for any family contemplating adoption.

Please take a few moments and head over to The Gang’s All Here and leave her a comment, congratulating her on her selection as Loyal Commenter.

Thank you, Gang’s Momma, for your humor, your encouragement, your candor and your openness. And, of course, for being such a loyal commenter here at 5 Minutes for Mom. Please display this Loyal Commenter badge with pride.

    I don’t think I’ve ever visited The Gang’s Momma before. I’ll have to check her blog out.

    I don’t know if you can delete Mr. Linky’s or not but I messed up when I put my link up. If you can, delete the first one. For some reason it automatically saved my Wordless Wednesday link. Sorry about that!

  2. says

    Well I shall pop along and take a look in that case. Just in case anyone hasn’t already read it do pop along to Scribbit today to read her interview with All Riley’d Up as we special needs mums can always do with a little boost.
    Best wishes

    Thank you for all those wonderful, glowing things that you said. I’m honored to be featured. My prayer is that you be encouraged when you read our blog and that Jesus be honored. I appreciate the supportive network of moms I’ve found since I began reading here and the exposure to all sorts of parenting styles, resources, and families. Thank you again. I’m all teary eyed at the honor. Really.
