    Hi Nyla,

    You’ve met my daughter Andrea Jordan. She may have mentioned to you that I am writing a book and am in need of someone who can capture a scene from each chapter. I’ll give you a sample from the introduction. This is a book of encouragement and advice for families with adopted and foster kids (it also works for normal people too).

    “John was 3 years old. My wife, Linette, and I were trying to build memories and a relationship with this cute little blond boy with big blue eyes. We were sitting in the dirt outside our home drawing pictures of things in the soil. I drew a man (a stick figure), a woman (a stick figure), and a tree (looked like a stick with a triangle on top), and asked John if he would like to make a face in the sand. I expected a smiley face, but John looked at me, then whooomph!!, he just plowed his head right into the dirt. A big cloud of dust in the air and grit in his teeth, he raised his head and gazed at me expectantly for approval.
    I looked at Linette, our eyes wide, and thought “Oh my God, this is not a normal child.” We were right. He was not a normal child. But he and his sisters have taught us more about patience, love, and frustration, sorrow, and peace than we could have ever hoped for. ”

    This would be the book cover. The title is “Make a face in the Sand”. Each chapter tells a story and lessons about parenting.

    What do you think? Up your alley?
