I think I explained before how totally blown away we were by the responses to our Shine Parenting Gurus program. In case you missed it, we were humbled, and honored, and yes, occasionally even teary. Truthfully, these little snippets of your lives were so intimate and lovely that choosing a handful for the program was nearly impossible. Nevertheless, we prevailed, and we are thrilled beyond belief to announce our new Shine Parenting Gurus!
With traditions ranging from making a special meal for a large family, to walking a stepdaughter through a corn maze, to helping foster kids understand a loving family dynamic, the 20+ winning posts told us something essential and beautiful about family life and about how we, as parents, grow and change with our kids.
Winners have been notified through a note from me at the bottom of their original blog post, as well as personal emails (whatever you created your Yahoo profile with) so be sure to check yours! If for some reason you've been notified of winning on your post but didn't receive an email from me, please send me a note a shine_mirajacob(at)yahoo.com, and I'll be sure to get in touch.
Lastly-thank you again to all of the parents who entered. We had far more wonderful stories than we had slots in our program, and reading each of these was such an honor.
