It seems "Does she call you Mom?" isn't such an odd question. Teleflora and NBC have decided to include adoptive mothers in the "Non-Mom" category for their America's Favorite Mom contest. Jennifer K. is an adoptee, and a mother by birth and adoption, yet she qualifies as a "Non-mom."

I wonder if my non-kids will be able to find an appropriate card. They'll probably have to not make one themselves. I just hope they never buy me a teleflora bouquet.

PS I just faxed Jeff Zucker.

Oooh, that burns me up! How dare they!

Okay, I'll take a deep breath now.

So, I hope you don’t mind me high jacking your comments for a second. I wanted to let you know that I’ve just published a post listing many of my handmade products for sale through my new home-based business, Sparkle & Charm Boutique. Please stop by and take a look. If you help me spread the word, you’ll be entered in a drawing for a free giveaway! Thanks, I do appreciate it!

What the heck were they thinking? Shame on NBC. I wrote a letter, but I doubt they'll get it.

Did they change the category? It now says "The Adopting Mom," which is sort of an odd title as "the adopting mom" makes it sound like the adoption isn't done (although of course it is always a process). But better than non-mom, which is infuriating.
